Limits of Love

“You cannot build a society on love alone. Love unites, but it also divides. It leaves the less-loved feeling abandoned, neglected, disregarded, “hated.” It can leave in its wake strife, envy, and a vortex of violence and revenge…We must learn to love; but we must also know the limits of love, and the importance of justice-as-fairness in families and in society.”
