What is love?

Love has been one of those terms that has gripped the history of civilization. For better or for worse, we, on a daily basis, construe our lives based on our particular understanding of love - we usually link our happiness with love. There are many perspectives on love: emotions, practice, ethic, to name a few. Often, our experiences with love are powerful, and they are indeed worth sharing.

  • Sep 29 2012: Negative. You get butterflies in your stomach when you are trying to tell a lie to your love or when love misunderstands you or when your love has been snatched away by someone else. When love takes over your body, it also occupies your mind and soul. At that moment words may not flow out of your mouth, :) your eyes and eyelids starts speaking, you would look dumfound, you will have glow in your face even on a hot summer, every part of your body will be expressing in its own way, every nerve cells will be flooded with fresh blood. It will be a spontaneous reaction. I wish i could have taken some photos of people who are in love. You may have heard people dream when they are in love. I have seen young girls standing in full view of public and talking to some imaginery imagination, laughing to themselves, hugging themselves. Care should be taken by the concerened to safe guard these young hearts, for there exist some evil men and women whom society calls'em pimps, may use these budding angels into variou illeagel activities. Mr.Christian, love is a subject which can be talked, potrayed, filmed in millions of ways. One good thing about love is, IT IS A WARM FEELING. No mortal or immortal can snatch or rob you of it. A man or a woman may cheat you of your love. But if can forget the past, and nurture the love within you, it will sprout again with a fresh flavour known as - ”LOVE”. :)
