Quotes by Mortimer J. Adler

Mortimer J. Adler, born 1902. American philosopher and educator whose numerous published works include How to Read a Book (1940) and The Conditions of Philosophy (1965).

  • Freud's view is that all love is sexual in its origin or its basis. Even those loves which do not appear to be sexual or erotic have a sexual root or core. They are all sublimations of the sexual instinct.
  • In every instance of acquisitive desire we are impelled to seek something for ourselves-to get it, consume it, appropriate or possess it in some way.
  • Love wishes to perpetuate itself. Love wishes for immortality.
  • The Greeks and Romans had different names for the different kinds of love. The Greeks used the word eros and the Romans used the word amor for the kind of love we call erotic, amorous, or sexual.
  • There is no mutuality in ordinary desire: the hungry man wants to eat the food, but the food does not reciprocate-it doesn't want to be eaten.
  • We also say we love our freedom, which is something we certainly need but do not love.
  • When we ask for love, we don't ask others to be fair to us-but rather to care for us, to be considerate of us. There is a world of difference here between demanding justice... and begging or pleading for love.
  • We love even when our love is not requited.
