Dust, Dusk and Sesame Seeds - The Novel

Quote from the book

“Through love arises a sense of respect. And respect gives way to fear. But this fear is different from the fear we normally experience. Fear arising out of love is fear in its most divine form. If love brings people together, it’s fear that keeps them from falling apart. It is what makes them responsible to each other. In this sense, love and fear are but the same thing.”
