“An economist says that essentially more for you is less for me, but the lover knows that more for you is more for me, too. If you love somebody, then their happiness is your happiness. Their pain is your pain. Your sense of self expands to include other beings. That’s love. Love is the expansion of the self to include the other, and that’s a different kind of revolution.”
