skepticism about love

BR8C5064sm

“I am not such a believer in universal love. Love of everybody for everybody- we should maybe leave that to Jesus. Love is another thing altogether. It is nothing like whatever like generosity. It is nothing like whatever like compassion. On the contrary. Love is a curious mix of opposites, a blend of extreme selfishness and total devotion. A paradox! Besides which, love, everybody is always talking about love, love, but love isn’t something you choose, you catch it, like a disease, you get trapped in it, like a disaster…”-A tale of Love and Darkness- Amos Oz.
