bonds 2

My little brother does not appreciate the nature of my studies when I am away from home. He does not see all the colors of my moods. He does not know the depths of my thoughts. But I am his brother and he is my brother all the same.

Reason and understanding can facilitate the development of bonds, but they are not foundational to our bonds. What binds us is something more basal. It is from this that love derives its unconditionality.
