“Love is of three varieties:
Unselfish (Samartha), Mutual (Samanjasa) and Ordinary or Selfish (Sadharana).
Unselfish love is of the highest kind. The lover here seeks only the welfare of the beloved, and does not care whether he suffers pains and hardships thereby.
The second kind of love is mutual love in which the lover desires not only the happiness of his beloved, but has an eye to his own happiness also.
Selfish love is the lowest. It makes a man only care for his own happiness without having any regard for the weal or woe of the beloved.”
Ramakrishna Paramahamsa (18 February 1836 – 16 August 1886)
