Not ONE answer or THE answer, but many answers. Why should there be many answers to one question? Because, for one thing, people are so very different from each other. There isn't a mind that thinks like another mind. So why should one person be the same as another person? There isn't a person who acts the same way as another person. So why should one heart feel like another heart? People are different from each other. And even within the same person, love is different, depending on whether it is the brain or the heart that gives the answer. The heart is forever making the head its fool. By Francois de La Rochefoucauld What is the difference between the brain and the heart . . . ? There are some differences that are really simple, but others are harder There is one main thing that both the heart and the brain don't understand. As the heart feels things that the brain can't understand, the brain understands things that the heart can't feel. There are also many different things that people can say about it, can think about it, can believe about it, and can hope it to be. It is talked about in almost everything that you can imagine, songs, books history, images, even science. What is it I’m talking about, you ask. Well, what else? Love, the number one thing most people want. Example: "Love has 2 sides. The self-centered side and the other-centered side. The self-centered side says -- I love how I feel when I'm with you. I long to be with you, to spend time with you, to hold you. The other-centered side says -- I care about you. I long to please you and see you happy. Doing what's best for you is more important to me
than what I want for myself. Love is a very good thing when both sides are in harmony." From: "Love has 2 Sides" by RoseDQ Comments: Love is grabbing a ropeswing on a tree over a river and pushing off and enjoying the ride. It's wild, you have to trust, and it's a bit scary, and underneath you are things that can sweep you away. from The Jotter "From my jormal: To Love someone was to see them through the eyes of God." from Kenosis23 Love is far and wide. It spreads, and its focused. from duponthumanite Augustine had some good words about love.Love is nuturing the Being in each person. from duponthumanite And Plato has some good ones too. Especially in the Symposium. I had to type them out from my programme. from duponthumanite Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is proud. It is not rude, it is not self seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps now record of wrongs. love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. it always trusts, always hopes, always perseves. 1Corintians 13:4-7 from Rose Love is friendship set on fire!(i heard someone say this once and liked the idea of it!) from Orwell_1984 :I have found the paradox, that if you love intill it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love."-- Mother Teresa from Orwell_1984 No matter how many beautiful words we read or write about love, none will ever match what we feel, and there will never be an answer to the question, the question deserves to remain unanswered:) from LingLang So, Ling, your saying that your wimping out just because the answer is impossible? from Kenosis23 "Love is everything it's cracked up to be. That's why people are so cynical
about it.. It really is worth fighting for, risking everything for .And the trouble is, if you don't risk everything, you risk even more."-- Erica Jong from Orwell_1984 when love is noun, it is idolatry.. from DanielEssman For the poet, love is a form of self-adornment... From DanielEssman If The Jabberwocky were a love poem... what does "brilling" mean? and for the matter,"gyre and gimble?" DanielEssman Love only knows one master...Love. from DanielEssman It is always open-hearted with kindness at its core. Love is gentle and incredibly tender on one hand, and full of passion and swirling butterflies on the other. It is life's ultimate pleasure-giver and the essence of humanity. from Alika747 Suh a thought_ provoking question-and you're right, there are many answers. Love defies the idea of encapsulation and it comes in so many forms. For it is never a pasive feeling or state of being. it is an active verb, and noun- and is as much a part of living and breathing as...living and breathing! from Alika747 "...if someone says he loves me, but doesn't care deeply about me, doesn't encourage me in my growth toward becoming the person i need to be, f he is jealous of all other passions and people and interest that are part of who i am, is that real love?..." from Rose Love is feeling respect care hurt pain death life sickness children honor care helping sharing building a life time love works when two heats beat as one Great write my friend. its controls all emotions for good and bad. from godteaches children family religion nations people men women from godteaches Better never leave your love as someone out there really cares and only the heart knows... from Shinning_star Thanks everyone who contributed A special thanks to Rose who mad the whole poem even better than its original version.
