Mortimer Adler

American philosopher, educator and promoter.
If one wants another only for some self-satisfaction, usually in the form of sensual pleasure, that wrong desire takes the form of lust rather than love.More Mortimer Adler quotes [07/11/2011 07:07:43]
Love consists in giving without getting in return; in giving what is not owed, what is not due the other. That's why true love is never based, as associations for utility or pleasure are, on a fair exchange.More Mortimer Adler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Commemoration of Ignatius of Loyola, Founder of the Society of Jesus, 1556 Sin is not only manifested in certain acts that are forbidden by divine command. Sin also appears in attitudes and dispositions and feelings. Lust and hate are sins as well as adultery and murder. And, in the traditional Christian view, despair and chronic boredom -- unaccompanied by any vicious act -- are serious sins. They are expressions of man's separation from God, as the ultimate good, meaning, and end of human existence.More Mortimer Adler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Reading is a basic tool in the living of a good life.More Mortimer Adler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Habits are formed by the repetition of particular acts. They are strengthened by an increase in the number of repeated acts. Habits are also weakened or broken, and contrary habits are formed by the repetition of contrary acts.More Mortimer Adler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
