Freud describes the psychoanalyst as one who makes use of the influence which one human being exercises over another...let us say that the doctor, in his educative work, makes use of one of the components of love.... Side by side with the exigencies of life, love is the great educator; and it is by the love of those nearest him that the incomplete human being is induced to respect the decrees of necessity and to spare himself the punishment that follows any infringement of them.

-- Sigmund Freud
