What is Love?
Love, love, love, we hear it every day, every where , it is used so often that we don’t really give it a thought.
The question that needs to be answered is what really is love? Was love created so that hate can be suppressed? Is love something that both man and woman hope for when their world comes crashing down on them? Does love help relief pain and suffering felt by victims of natural disasters?
Aphrodite, Venus, Cupid, and Eros were well know as the gods of love and sex by Greeks and Romans well before Christ was born, which basically makes love a very old subject. Yet this still does not answer the question, what really is love? If you were to flip thru a dictionary

The word love has been around since the beginning of time and in this day in age it still has the same meaning as it has always had. However, now days there are more ways in which our culture uses the word love. If one was to say "I love you" or "I love it", is he saying that because he truly means it or is he simply saying that because that is what he thinks is the right thing to say? Love is the deepest, most meaningful word one can say about someone or something, however, the way we use it in our culture is far beyond the true necessity of the word. The true meaning of the word love out of Webster's Dictionary states "love is a powerful emotion felt for another person, manifesting itself

Is love chemical?
Love can't be just pheromones, surely body chemistry changes. Although, perhaps that is why people break up after a while. Maybe they were attracted to each other at one point, but then the pheromones they were giving off change and the other person is no longer attracted to them.
What is attraction based on? What attracts one person to another?
People have said they have fallen in love before meeting in person, thanks to the Internet. Pheromones can't account for that. If someone falls in love, without meeting the other person (in-person), what is left? Voice, a photo or two, etc. Perhaps attraction is oral. But

Without love what would life be like? Think about it, millions of people say, "I love you." We celebrate love on Valentine's Day, but what is love? Some people say that in order to be in love with someone you have to have had sex with that person. Or that you can't be in love with the same sex. Someone that you're in love with might ask you to do something that you don't want to do in order to prove your love. When you love another person, do you ask them to "sacrifice a part of themselves in the name of that love" (Bahr, 1232)? No. All these statements are not what love is. Sex is not love and love is not sex. Love can be between the same sexes, and you sure don't ever have to prove

Love, Love, Love. We all think about it, dream about it, sing about it, and even lose sleep worrying about it, but why? Love is such a small word paired with a vital meaning. It’s universal, easy to spell, difficult to define, but impossible to live without. When we don’t have it, we search for it, when we find it, we don’t know what to do with it, when we have it, we fear losing it. Love is the constant source of happiness and sorrow. I am young and I haven't a clue as to what love is, let alone what falling in love is. However, I have my ideas of what love is like. I have never witnessed the beauty of people falling in love, or the severity of those falling out of love, so what is love

What is Love? Religion, Politics, Racism…. All controversial topics within our world, however there is no topic such as the meaning of 'Love'. There are so many versions of 'What Love Exactly Is', so coming to a simple definition would seem almost impossible to most people. 'Love' has been the basis of most things in our society, and has been shown in many mediums. How can a small world mean so many different things? The simplest definition I was able to find was within 'The Reader's Digest Oxford Complete Wordfinder', here it stated that love is 'an intense feeling of deep affection or fondness for a person or thing'. Intense being a strong emotion and affection meaning 'showing

In your own words, describe what it means to you; what it includes, or doesn't include, etc.We humans are emotional beings. Our emotions are generally divided into two categories: positive and negative. Love is an outstanding type of positive emotion, and, in its extreme form, there is true love.If you look up the word love in The American Heritage Dictionary, you'll find quite a few definitions about love: "A deep, tender, ineffable feeling of affection and solicitude toward a person", "A feeling of intense desire and attraction toward a person," or "An intense emotional attachment, as for a pet or treasured object". While love in general is a positive feeling for anything that pleases us

Love: What is it? Love, what is it? To many people love means many things. To others, to love is to place their happiness in one another. Others love can be how they feel about that special someone. I'm not talking about the fatherly love or that motherly love. I'm talking about the love that you feel towards someone. That special someone that you could possibly spend the rest of your life with. Webster defines love as a strong feeling of attraction resulting from sexual desire; enthusiasm or fondness. But to me love is not just a feeling, but it is the way that you treat that special someone that you care for. Treating them so kindly so they'll know you care and love them. Love in my eyes

God. Dante describes one instance in chapter XIX, just after he has decided to devote himself to writing words in praise of his lady.
After some reflection, Dante becomes afraid that he has taken on too ambitious a goal and is unsure of his ability to do Beatrice justice. It is in this indecision that he is walking along a path by a clear stream and a sudden strong urge to write comes over him. He says that, after deciding that he should only speak of his lady to other gracious women, “my tongue spoke, almost as though moved of its own accord, and said: ‘Ladies who know by insight what love is.’” (25)

Her passionate character is obviously revealed by the lines she speaks and things she does.Men that have paid effort for love are mainly Orsino, Malvolio, Sir Andrew and Antonio. Orsino claims he himself as an ardent and passionate lover. What he does are listening to melancholic music (his most famous line in Act I sc I 'If music be the food of love, play on.'), indulging in love and most importantly, sending Viola to Olivia's place and to woo her for him. He never asks what Olivia really wants and needs. In Act II sc iv

Science is no doubt the most influential force which takes over almost everything in the world. It seeks to explain the unexplainable, to prove how everything existed, and to provide answers to all the questions one may think of. However, what science has left unexplained until now is the concept of love.What is love? Is there such thing as "destiny" or "fate"? What does one mean by "100% woman", or a "perfect" man/woman? Since science still can't find answers to these questions, several love-story writers often play around with the world of love. They either attempt to provide an explanation for love, or use its "unexplainable effect" to create a story.In the story "On Meeting My 100

The entire significance of situation ethics is the idea that we must make the most loving decision in a particular situation. Therefore, being relative is fundamental if one wishes to follow the ethic correctly.Situation Ethics holds the view that love is the only moral criterion, and that all our actions are to be judged by it and it alone.

What is Love?In today's society, love is most often thought of as a romantic feeling between two people. However, it also exists between friends, relatives, and other people. 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8 clearly states what love is.1 Corinthians says that love keeps no record of wrongs. This doesn't mean, however, that someone who misbehaves often can't earn a bad reputation. A good example of this is mark Twain's character Tom Sawyer. Though Aunt Polly always forgave him for the bad things he had done, she still remembered them and he was often accused when there was trouble in their house. When someone asks for forgiveness from God, he not only forgives, but also forgets his or her sin, and it

"The Love Song of J.Alfred Prufrock" is a dramatic monologue. It is a speech of a person which illustrates a story and reveals his character. Although the transitions are seemly illogical and violent, it is not just random lines of prose. The Love Song of J.Alfred Prufrock is a magnifying glass which presents the readers with his human nature, able to give an impression of his character even from a superficial reading.
The human nature of J.Alfred Prufrock is not expressed by the subject himself, but by the author, T.S. Eliot. He did so in a way which Prufrock could not have done himself, thus placing Prufrock into an objective view, presenting the actual condition of Prufrock without bias

Romance adds the sparkle in your eyes. Romance adds the perfume and the colors. Romance embellishes the scenery and swells the music. Romance is the gilding of love. Romance is gold leaf.

most selfless act is to love another without condition. It is unlike discrimination, as the subconscious makes the decision of whom and what to love, and it is unlike negative feelings of spite or anathema. Love is unlike any concept that can be described in words.What began as primitive need for reproduction, has turned into the need for human companionship and the quest for love, whilst the emotional security and closeness is derived from family structure. Love itself is driven by a spiritual or religious force and although compatibility is said to be a string of chemical amalgamations, love has a lot to do with chance, or fate, as some like to call it.Where there are harsh emotions, love

The Meaning of Love What exactly is love? Is there an absolute meaning to the word - love? Or is it purely subjective? The concept of true love is what we search for all our lives. Yet love is one of the most misunderstood concepts of all. What people really want more than anything else is to be loved unconditionally; to be accepted for who we are, and still be loved. Sometimes we will do some crazy things, in the name of love. Love is actually the choice one makes to put someone's wishes, desires and needs above our own. Many people confuse the word love with the meaning of the word want or desire. For example, sometimes when a young man tells the woman of his dreams, I love you, when he

Commonly, the feeling of lust that is often mistaken as love at first sight.

The fear that emerges from such forceful waves makes you want to take cover and hide from what is about to happen, which is also the flip side to love.

Love is caring about someone so deeply that your life would be very different with out them there and there would always be a little piece of yourself missing if they pass away or leave you.

Basically limerence is the state of being completely carried away by unreasoned passion or love.

Love is love. It does not matter if a person is gay, straight, or bisexual. The term marriage is derived from two people coming together in matrimony to form a bond between the two, in order to obtain mutual benefits federally and state wide, and to formalize the decision of two people to live as a married couple. The definition of marriage has been disputed for several decades, whether if it should be defined as a ceremony between a man and a women, or a ceremony between people of same-sex. Although, in the last couple of years, people have been fighting to legalize same-sex marriage federally. Throughout this last year and this year, several states have lifted the ban against same-sex

Love is an emotion we all experience in our lives. The feeling is
amazing for most people and not so wonderful for others. As I searched
for the word love in the dictionary, the definition explained it to be a
strong affection and warm attachment for another person. I believe the
word love has a more intense and deeper meaning than any dictionary is
able to represent. It does little to define what love is beyond the
eyes of the person who actually experiences it. A person that is
familiar with the term learns the emotions and feelings that develops
throughout the relationship. A dictionary definition is unable to

the time I started kindergarten, I was a very smart, yet, stoic little girl.
When I was in fifth grade, my mother experienced her most troubling bouts of paranoia. She’d ask me if I heard the voices too. What had been fairy tales of the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, and the Tooth Fairy turned into dark, lurking monsters stealing from us all we owned without mercy. What was reality? I did not know.
