From ancient years this is only question which has not been given a definite answer that satisfies every single human being. It is hard to derive one single answer that will please all minds. Various individual answers have been given to the question ‘What Love Really Means??’ it differs from person to person and their unique perspective of love in general. There are many kinds of love; it is also inherent in all human beings. The diversity of cultures is what makes it hard to establish a universal definition for love.
Logic states that everything in this world has a cause and an effect. True love is the only feeling which is its own cause and its own effect; Illogical and yet above all logical explanations. Some of the quotes and ideas of real people on the subject matter of love are given below:
According to Wikipedia.com “love differs from heart to heart; love can be good and can be bad. To love and be loved is the perfect ingredients to happiness but to love and not be loved will be a darkness in your soul. Being in love is like a drop of water after years of draught, it eases your soul’s agonies of life. Being in love is a feeling not all humans will experience. So if you have it cherish…….just love it…”.
“To describe love is very difficult, for the same reason that words cannot fully describe the flavor of an orange. You have to taste the fruit to know its flavor” says Paramahansa Yogananda.
True love has a foundation of integrity, respect, faith and trust. Love is the force that brings about unity and harmony.
“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” stated St. Bernard [1090 – 1153], French Theologian and reformer.
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 must be experienced; its meaning is infinite and can never be totally defined.
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear – Bible
For some God is love.
Love has never been defined since man began, so we have to use our own hearts and minds to decide.
Here is a story about how a four year old boy loved his neighbor
The old man living next to this little boy’s house recently lost his wife, upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old man’s yard, climbed onto his lap and just sat there. When his mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said, “Nothing mom, I just helped him cry”.
Love itself is a universal experience. Yet, every individual occurrence – while perhaps bound by a common thread – seems absolutely unique. Love is what love is! To everyone it expresses itself differently.
