“It’s when we coach ourselves to act in loving ways in service of our relationship (even if we don’t happen to feel very loving at the moment) that we pass the true test of love. It requires more to act loving when we don’t feel that way. It asks us to go deep inside ourselves, to tug at our resources, and to deliver what truly matters to us. Acting out of a sense of enduring attachment and commitment to another human being can be very loving indeed.”

—Janis Abrahms Spring
