This is what we are like. Collectively, as a species, this is our emotional landscape. I met an old lady once, almost one hundred years old, and she told me, “There are only two questions that human beings have ever fought over, all through history. ‘How much do you love me?’ & ‘Who’s in charge?'” Everything else is somehow manageable. But these two questions of love and control undo us all, trip us up and cause war, grief and suffering.
