What is LOVE ???

Hi people.. It has been some time since i post anything here.. Now its time to post something interesting..
I'm sure everyone of you wondered.. What is Love actually.. ? I have been doing a lot of reading.. and here is what i've found..

How do you define love ?

Some say it's mysterious.. magical.. complex.. dificult.. imaginary.. through-provoking.. inspirational.. intuitional.. joyous.. immeasurable.. ecstacy.. and undefinable.. Perhaps.

"Love is a feeling directed at someone which acknowledges their goodness." - Dr. John Gray

"The willful intent to serve the well being of another." - M. Scott Peck

Love is patient.. Love is kind.. It does not envy.. it does not boast.. it is not proud.. It is not rude.. It is not self-seeking.. It is not easily angered.. It keeps no record of wrongs.. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.. It always protects.. always trusts.. always hopes.. always perseveres.. - Corinthians 13 : 5 - 7

To decribe love is very difficult.. for the same reason that words cannot fully describe a flavour of an orange.. You have to taste the fruit to know its flavour.. So with love.. - Paramahansa Yogananda

Love itself is a universal experience.. Yet.. every individual occurrence.. while perhaps bound by common threads.. seems absolutely unique.. Love is what love is.. To everyone it express itself differently..

All you need is love ! - The Beatles

Love is the answer for all questions !

It is important to stand in love.. not fall into it..

Love is waking up to find the object of your affection in the dream you were having asleep on your shoulder..

Could it be that love is a story that can never be fully expressed ?

Love is seeing an imperfect person perfectly - Sam Keen

Love is a bond or connection between two people that results in trust.. intimacy.. and an interdependence that enhances both partners..

Love is the ability and willingness to allow those you care for to be what they choose for themselves.. without any insistence that they satisfy you.. - Leo Buscaglia

Making love is the highest level and the most loving way we can physically express our love for our love partner.. Everyone knows that the sexual experience can be the single most loving.. most exciting.. most powerful.. most exhilarating.. most renewing.. most energizing.. most affirming.. most intimate.. most uniting.. most stress-relieving.. most recreative physical experience of which humans are capable..

Love is friendship set on fire.. - Jeremy Taylor

If you would be loved.. love and be lovable.. - Benjamin Franklin

When you tell someone something bad about yourself and you're scared they wont love you anymore.. But then you get surprised because not only do they still love you.. they love you even more.. - Matthew ( 7 yrs )

Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.. Mary Ann ( 4 yrs )

Logic says everything in this world has a cause and effect.. True love is the only feeling which is its own cause and its own effect.. It is something illogical and yet above all logic.. I love her coze I love her.. and I love her so I love her.. - Prateek Kumar

Love is comforting someone in need of love and having them know that somebody cares..

Love is looking past imperfections in your partner and seeing the beautiful person inside.. True love seeks the happiness and well being of your partner.. Love expresses itself in the mutual respect you demonstrate to your partner..

Love is like letting your partner have the TV remote for 30 days.. - For The Guys

Love must be experienced.. Its meaning is infinite and can never be totally defined..

The opposite of love is fear.. Think about it..

The is no fear in love.. but perfect love cast out fear.. John 4 : 1

God is love..

Love is loving someone without expecting anything in return.. no judgments.. no restrictions.. no limitation.. no expectations..

True love is the nature of bliss..

Love is expressed when you are being someone who loves someone for who they are.. not who you think they should be..

Love is embracing differences and discovering ways in which to build a common lifestyle.. share decision-making.. and taking equal responsibility for the results..

I was nauseous and tingly all over.. I was either in Love or I had small pox.. - Woody Allen

Love seeks no cause beyond itself and no fruit.. it is its own fruit.. its own enjoyment.. I love because I love.. I love in order that I may love.. - St. Bernard

Teach only love for that is what you are..

Love is a decision..

If you want love.. you must first love.. love begets love.. you cannot deliver from an empty wagon.. you must first learn to love yourself before you can give love..

Love is not manipulative.. It must never be used to get others to do what you want.. when you love someone you never ask them to sacrifice a part of themselves in the name of love.. This form of manipulation contaminates our love for another..

Cant buy me love.. - The Beatles

Love is to like with a great intensity..

True love has a foundation of integrity.. respect.. faith.. and trust.. Love is the force that brings about unity and harmony..

Celebrate love.. Larry James

Although love is at the root of our basic nature.. love for another human being must be cultivated.. it takes time for love to mature..

Is your love free and unconditional.. or is it mixed with various needs.. conditions.. and demands from your partner ?

The road to self-discovery is paved with Love..

Hatred paralyzes life.. love releases it..
Hatred paralyzes life.. love harmonizes it..
Hatred darkens life.. love illuminates it.. - Martin Luther King, Jr.

Love has no meaning other than the meaning we give it..

Perhaps.. Love just Is.. While in its allness and in its nothingness.. all we need to do is simply let it be..

Love is that condition whereby the happiness of another is essential to your own.. - Robert Heinlein

To demonstrate love.. say.. I love you.. outloud.. at least each day to someone you love.. There is a magic in these 3 little words.. Saying I love you.. is the most beautiful gift you can give to your partner.. these words are the most treasured a person can hear..

One must understand whether " what is love" can be a question which can be answered ? Love cannot be a question.. For it is a question then an answer should be there.. If the answer is there.. where is it ? This question is ancient and an answer should have been found by now.. If the answer has been found.. the question would have disappeared..

But the question still remains.. meaning the answer has not been found.. If is has not been found as yet.. then what is the certainty that it will be found ? Maybe the mind can never find the answer.. A single answer.. which will please all minds.. is not possible for each mind has its own ideas of love.. Hence a universal answer is an illusion..

Individual answers are there for love and for this very reason there are arguments about the love for each mind will contradict the answer of another mind.. This contradiction is normal for each mind lives in a different point in time.. Hence.. "what is love" is an illusionary question.. which has no answer ! - Dr.Vijai

Those are wonderful definitions and opinions about what is love all about..

Well.. for me.. i would say that.. Love is you.. Love is me.. Love is everyone.. without love.. we would not be here..

The world in one word.. Love ! One word all around the world.. Love !

Love is a Gift of God.. Ignore or Misuse it and you may suffer as u can't imagine.. Love should be true.. Love should be Godly.. and Love should be unconditional.. - Alvin Martin a.k.a. Dr.Love
