Love isn’t just wanting another person the way you want to own an object you see in a store. That’s just desire. You want to have it around, take it home and set it up somewhere in the apartment like a lamp. Love is like a father saving his children from a burning house, getting them out and dying himself. When you love you cease to live for yourself; you live for another person.
