  • the hub around which a person's life revolves

    Intimate attachments to other human beings are the hub around which a person’s life revolves, not only as an infant or a toddler or a schoolchild, but throughout adolescence and years of maturity as well, and on into old age. From these intimate attachments a person draws strength and enjoyment of life and, through what s/he contributes, gives strength and enjoyment to others. These are matters about which current science and traditional wisdom are at one.
