Impossible to love G-d without fearing him

Impossible to have love without fear:[1]

Fear of Hashem is the gateway for achieving love of G-d. One who does not have fear of G-d, cannot achieve love, and if he feels love, it is not real and is a fiction of his hearts imagination. Love of Hashem is given to a person from Hashem, and Hashem only gives it to a person who has fear of Him.
