Summary of Bell Hooks's All About Love - Abridged
Please note:This audiobook has been generated using AI Voice. This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The word love is most often defined as a noun, but theorists of love believe we would all love better if we used it as a verb. The definition given by psychiatrist M. Scott Peck is: The will to extend one’s self for the purpose of nurturing one’s own or another’s spiritual growth. #2 Love is the will to nurture our own and another person’s spiritual growth. We can’t claim to love someone if we are hurtful and abusive. Love and abuse cannot coexist. #3 When I was growing up, I was given caring attention in my family of origin, but I was also told that I was a smart girl, and that I would go crazy if I thought I was so smart. This mix of care and unkindness did not positively nurture the growth of my spirit. #4 The definition of love that helped me the most was the will to extend yourself for the purpose of nurturing your own or another’s spiritual growth. It took me years to let go of the patterns of behavior that negated my capacity to give and receive love.
