or a perfect parent:
Rembrandt, The Return of the Prodigal Son (fragment)
Two shades of irrevocable love:
Love which accepts unconditionally, tender, selfless, giving comfort- associated more with the love of a mother.
Love which requires, gives the impulse to reach out, firm, encouraging and equipping the other with confidence – associated more with the love of a father.
They need to go together, as one palm needs the other.
