    “Genuine love is rarely an emotional space where needs are instantly gratified. To know love we have to invest time and commitment. Dreaming that love will save us, solve all our problems or provide a steady state of bliss only keeps us stuck in wishful fantasy, undermining the real power of the love - which is to transform us. Many people want love to function like a drug, giving them an immediate and sustained high. They want to do nothing, just passively receive the good feeling.” -bell hooks
