The landmark bestseller that changed the way we think about love: “Every line is packed with common sense, compassion, and realism” (Fortune). The Art of Loving is a rich and detailed guide to love—an achievement reached through maturity, practice, concentration, and courage. In the decades since the book’s release, its words and lessons continue to resonate. Erich Fromm, a celebrated psychoanalyst and social psychologist, clearly and sincerely encourages the development of our capacity for and understanding of love in all of its facets. He discusses the familiar yet misunderstood romantic love, the all-encompassing brotherly love, spiritual love, and many more. A challenge to traditional Western notions of love, The Art of Loving is a modern classic about taking care of ourselves through relationships with others by the New York Times–bestselling author of To Have or To Be? and Escape from Freedom. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erich Fromm including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.

What is suggested to your attention is, in a sense, an invitation. To introduce the most interesting work of Erich Fromm: "The art of loving or exploring the nature of love." While reading this book, you are going to agree in some ways with its author, whereas in other ways you are not. In any case, you are not going to regret the time spent on reading it. In terms of a sense of pleasure received while reading and of benefits obtained from it. For your life. "The art of loving" can be commented on or discussed, can be both and even more. We, in our turn, allowed ourselves only to make a very tiny description about rationality/irrationality of the phenomenon of Love.

The Art Of Loving A Black Woman was inspired by the many beautiful black women that I see in my urban community. I also intended this work of poetry to be a pedestal to promote the bonding of black men and women. I feel there is a need for black men to bring back respectable love for black women. A respect that stemmed from the bosom of Africa, on through slavery, but deteriorated in the 1980’s and seems to be depleting in this twenty first century. I feel more men should step up to the plate and express the way they feel about the beauty and grace of our women. I decided to be one of those black men and this work of art is dedicated to the strong black mothers, sisters, daughters, and to the black community in general. I have tried to compile a complete 360 degree view of a black woman and a black man’s feelings when pertaining to her. This 360 degree view is urban poetry inspired by relationships built upon marriage, sexual relationships, friendship relationships, courting relationships, spiritual relationships, erotic filled relationships, and most importantly love filled relationships. I find this is the ultimate poetry guide to aid black men in The Art Of Loving A Black Woman.

Since ancient times, Hindus have expressed their love and devotion to their deities through beautiful ornamentation -- dressing and decorating the deities with elaborate clothing, jewelry, and flowers. In this pioneering study of temples in Vrindaban and Jaipur, India, Cynthia Packert takes readers across temple thresholds and into the god Krishna's sacred domain. She describes what devotees see when they behold gorgeously attired representations of the god and why these images look the way they do. She discusses new media as well as global forms of devotion popular in India and abroad. The Art of Loving Krishna opens a universe of meaning in which art, religious action, and devotion are dynamically intertwined.

There are as many paths to holiness as there are saints in Heaven . . . but you can’t follow them all. Yet there’s one thing every saint practices that you can imitate: the simple art of loving God, which the beloved St. Francis de Sales explains for you here. Under his wise and gentle guidance, you’ll discover the secrets to growing holier through the simple things in life — work, play, and rest. You’ll learn to avoid the distractions (even religious distractions) that trouble and weary your soul . . . and you’ll soon be able to focus your energy simply on loving God. Listen to the holy words of this saint; take them to heart; make them a part of your life. Soon you’ll be well on your way, following that path to Heaven that God, from all eternity, has given you as your very own. St. Francis de Sales himself will teach you the secrets of developing: Patience Trust Modesty Courage Simplicity Humility Obedience Generosity Perseverance Selflessness Gentleness Love of God and other key virtues A note for the skeptical and discouraged: Have you tried to grow closer to God using one technique after another, yet still find you haven’t made much progress? That’s a common problem in today’s world, where devotion has become so complicated that the simple art of loving God has been lost. Don’t despair. Generations of Christians have made finding God harder than it need be, which is why, every few hundred years, God sends us a saint like St. Francis de Sales to remind us that anyone can love God and that it’s not really so hard to do. Listen to St. Francis, and, no matter how many times you’ve failed in the past, you’ll soon be a master of the art of loving God.
