In his insightful book The Four Loves public library , C. Lewis November 29, —November 22, picks up where Aristotle left off and examines the differences between the four main categories of intimate human bonds — affection, the most basic and expressive; Eros, the passionate and sometimes destructive desire of lovers; charity, the highest and most unselfish spiritual connection; and friendship, the rarest, least jealous, and most profound relation. Lovers seek for privacy. Friends find this solitude about them, this barrier between them and the herd, whether they want it or not. In a circle of true Friends each man is simply what he is: stands for nothing but himself. Of course you will get to know about most of these in the end.
