If you're talking about the lyrics to that song, it means that the nun was telling the young man that you have to fear God to love God, but he took it that you have to fear PEOPLE to love them. That's why he says "So I never went back" meaning he never went back to the Catholic school because that statement was so cruel

Well…if you think about it, what are some of the scariest and most painful things to people?

-Losing their loved ones
-Seeing the people they love hurt
-Being hurt by the people they love

Loving someone means you feel a whole lot of powerful emotions, fear being one of them. Fear is the "heart" of love because it's what keeps love alive; a mother that isn't "scared" to let her three-year-old take the bus by themself doesn't LOVE her child.

Love means you want that person to be happy and you want to protect them-love exists because you're afraid for that person.

Thankfully, you do not have to believe every quote you read.

This one is true only if you are paranoid, as pointed out by Lys above.

I would think that joy and an eagerness to sacrifice oneself for the loved one are at the heart of love.

I think the quote is expressing that fear is a major part of love. Its saying how when you are in love you get scared but its ok to be scared because if the love is true it will save you from being scared and truly make you happy!

when you love you lay a lot on the line. fear of loss is the greatest fear to do with love. fear of rejection, fear that you may be getting it wrong.

love is the scariest and most wonderful thing in the world.

so fear is at the heart of love. even in the most solid wonderful relationship you can fear loss, thru death, betrayal, indifference.

hope this helps.

fear actually makes a person to love
there is a fear between to persons that they will not go away from each other , which makes both of them to be bounded by a strong relation which is love…"

as both these persons love each other by heart therefore "fear and love "resides inside the heart……
