Daily Quote
Any love that is dependent on something -- when the thing ceases, the love also ceases. But a love that is not dependent on any thing never ceases. What is [an example of] a love that is dependent on something? The love of Amnon for Tamar. And one that is not dependent on anything? The love of David and Jonathan.
  –Ethics of the Fathers, 5:16
