M. Scott Peck

I may meet a woman who strongly attracts me, whom I feel like loving, but because it would be destructive to my marriage to have an affair, I will say vocally or in the silence of my heart, “I feel like loving you, but I am not going to.” True love is not a feeling by which we are overwhelmed. It is a committed, thoughtful decision.

– M. Scott Peck, A Road Less Traveled
