The name for that cohesive force

Scientists tell us that,
without the presence of the cohesive force amongst the atoms that comprise this globe of ours,
it would crumble to pieces and we would cease to exist;
and even as there is cohesive force in blind matter,
so must there be in all things animate,
and the name for that cohesive force among animate beings is Love.


Mohandas Gandhi, 1920
