"Love is the first two steps, Knowledge and Wisdom, coming together. It’s 1 and 2 - put them together you get 12, and the twelfth letter in the alphabet is L, which stands for Love. If wisdom is like water, so is love. It dissolves you then rebuilds you stronger. It’s like when you have your first child - you’ve never felt weaker in your life. Your love for that child makes you vulnerable. But it also makes you stronger because you’ll do anything to protect that child. So love, like wisdom, dissolves you and then resolves you. It breaks down your ego and puts you back together again properly."
