Love, affection, passion. What is the difference?

- What is the difference between love and affection?

 

“We must fight for love, and affection itself fights to enslave us.” Love always only gives, and affection always only takes. Love is always looking to give itself and never looking to take.

 

What is the sign of affection and what is love?

 

- A sign of love - the lack of fear of people and circumstances. A sign of affection - the fear of losing a loved one. Attachment requires sacrifice from others. Love is held by self-sacrifice, and therefore it is permanent. Constancy is a sign of true love.

 

What is the difference between love and passion?

 

“To love with passion is to kill and corrupt the Love itself.” God draws the soul to Himself with meekness and love, and the devil draws the soul to him with the sharp hooks of voluptuous thoughts that corrupt, relax and kill her. Passion is like a surge of waves in a puddle, and this surge can last for a long time. Love is the perfect peace of the boundless seaand this peace abides forever.

 

What is the hardest thing in love?

 

- The most difficult thing is to be able to love and have no affection.
