What is love? 2.0 - What does science have to say?

Love is a multidimensional concept in which many subjects involving philosophy, morality, psychology, history, faith, science and opinions/perspectives can be used during the discussion.

Should values be taught by using love as the concept/term in which the discussion surrounds? (1.0 question)

The discussion of love is a great lesson to be held, it does not have to be limited to just facts or strong beliefs. It can transcend into both (in various degrees) and still create valid considerations, debates, arguments, understandings, beliefs and/or facts.

Love is an emotion of strong affection and personal attachment. In philosophical context, love is a virtue representing all of human kindness, compassion, and affection. Love is central to many religions, as in the Christian phrase, "God is love" or Agape in the Canonical gospels. Love may also be described as actions towards others (or oneself) based on compassion. Or as actions towards others based on affection. - Wikipedia

No idea of love is a bad one here.

Poems, short stories, links, etc are great!

Love is but an intense attachment; delusions, anticipations and/or short-sightedness affect/effect love and that should recognized. Making hate and love not exclusive but what build each other up.

    Nov 2 2011: What is love? according to science!

    Science = focus to a subject with WH questions and answers with considerable reference
    Love = (in the light of common definitions) the core is "the intention of giving more than possession"
    Love is not a physical thing but an emotion, very strong feeling to like and to be liked, to give or to have.
    It is the core of peace and harmony.
    While the greed is about to 'to have' only, and not to give or share any thing. That is the difference between love and greed.
