Buddhism Day by Day: Real Love isn’t a Person Clinging to Another

“A shallow person will only have relationships. Real love is not one person clinging to another; it can only be fostered between two strong people secure in their individuality. Antonio de Saint-Exupéry, author of ‘The Little Prince’ wrote in a work called ‘Wind, Sand and Stars,’ ‘Love is not two people gazing at each other, but two people looking ahead together in the same direction.”
