“Who we are and who we become depends, in part, on whom we love. (144)”
Thomas Lewis, A General Theory of Love

“The first part of emotional healing is being limbically known - having someone with a keen ear catch your melodic essence. (170)”
Thomas Lewis, A General Theory of Love

“Even after a peak parenting experience, children never transition to a fully self-tuning physiology. Adults remain social animals: they continue to require a source of stabilization outside themselves. That open-loop design means that in some important ways, people cannot be stable on their own - not should or shouldn't be, but can't be. This prospect is disconcerting to many, especially in a society that prizes individuality as ours does. Total self-sufficiency turns out to be a daydream whose bubble is burst by the sharp edge of the limbic brain. Stability means finding people who regulate you well and staying near them. (86)”
Thomas Lewis, A General Theory of Love
