This stage of love includes love for Mother, Father, the whole family, and friends… After all, the words "Father" and "Fatherland" come from a single root...


At this stage someone realizes own personal indispensable belonging to a specified place, and own association with the place by birth, where people speak his native language, and where everything is so dear… Even if you cannot place it on a map, even if it exists only in your heart…


You realize your close and intimate connection with your native land and deeply survive with it all its hardships and triumphs!


Having lived half of his life abroad, S.V. Rachmaninoff until his very last breath was feeling himself Russian and was never forgetting about his native land. Despite his nonconformity, during the World War II, he was performing in the USA and all the money thus raised was sending to the Soviet Army, considerably supporting it. He was writing, ‘I believe in our victory!’

His contribution for the history of the world music cannot be defined and appreciated less than a mission by the Ambassador of Russia, his native land!


There are many representatives for this stage of love... Their list might be opened with Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, Indira Gandhi, Charles de Gaulle, Jawaharlal Nehru, Olof Palme, Vladimir Putin...
