It is a blessed right to receive love, and correspondingly, it is one's virtue and obligation to offer it. We can find evidence of this established concept of love in almost every corner of the globe. There are various projects such as "hope project", "love project" in our society, from which we can see many virtues of humankind. Why millions upon millions of people, the young or the old, the rich or even the poor, volunteer to join the love group? It is love that links people with each other, for love is the true essence we seek for in all life. The sweetness of love is the sweetness of being alive. We feel love as we feel the warmth of our blood; we hold it in ourselves as we hold our thoughts. Nothing more exists for us.Therefore, "live and love" is a coherent whole that can never be parted. If to love is to be an inexhaustible happiness-seeder, and to be loved is a kind of sumptuous welfare, then beyond all doubt, we should live and love throughout the whole life.

1009 words - 4 pages similarities in our view on love. I do disagree with Elizabeth Barrett Browning's view on love because in today's society it is hard to find that kind of love anywhere. Today people are focused on material things and what a person has before love sets in. I do believe that true love and the love that Browning speaks of does exist and it is possible but it is rare to find in this day and age.
