“I and Thou” by Martin Buber

“Man wishes to be confirmed in his being by man, and wishes to have a presence in the being of the other….
Secretly and bashfully he watches for a YES which allows him to be and which can come to him only from one human person to another.”

“Love is the responsibility of an I for a You: in this consists what cannot consist in any feeling — the equality of all lovers..”
