Anthony De Mello on What Love Is

Often we think of love in relation to romance, attraction and desire. But is this really love? Or is it need?

“Wherever there is desire there is a threat [of not fulfilling that desire, or of losing the object of your desire]. And where there is a threat, there is fear. And where there is fear, there is no love, because we always hate what we fear. And perfect love casts out fear.”

— Anthony De Mello
