“you mean,” asked the Tragedian, ‘you mean–you did not love me truly in the old days.’

‘only in a poor sort of way,’ she answered. ‘I have asked you to forgive me. There was little real love in it. But what we called love down there was mostly the craving to be loved. In the main I loved you for my own sake: because I needed you.’

–from “the Great Divorce” by C. S. Lewis
