ARTICLE: Pause and Ponder, Joe M. CUMMINGS and Gerald L. BROWN Jan. 1979
He who knows nothing, loves nothing. He who can do nothing understands nothing. He who understands nothing is worthless. But he who understands also loves, notices, sees...The more knowledge is inherent in a thing, the greater the love...Anyone who imagines that all fruits ripen at the same time as the strawberries knows nothing about grapes...Paracelsus.
One has to develop his total personality in order to achieve the capacity to love or be loved. Most people see the problem of love primarily as that of being loved, rather than that of loving. Love is not a sentiment-It is an art!
