Can you define Love ?

Why on Earth each person gives a contradictory meaning to such a  simple word called ‘ L O V E ‘  

Some negative thoughts 

“Love sucks.Sometimes it feels good.Sometimes it’s just another way to bleed”. Laurell K Hamilton

“Love is a trap,when it appears we only see its light,not its shadows”. Paul Coelho

Love is the word used to label the sexual excitement of the young, the habituation of the middle-aged, and the mutual dependence of the old.”
John Ciardi

Romantic love is an illusion. Most of us discover this truth at the end of a love affair or else when the sweet emotions of love lead us into marriage and then turn down their flames.”
Thomas Moore

When one is in love, one always begins by deceiving one’s self, and one always ends by deceiving others. That is what the world calls a romance.”
Oscar Wilde

Some positive thoughts 

“Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest human beings infinite distances continue, a wonderful living side by side can grow, if they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each to see the other whole against the sky.” Rainer Maria Rilke

“Love is a friendship set to music.”  Joseph Campbell

“Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.” Maya Angelou

“Love is of all passions the strongest, for it attacks simultaneously the head, the heart and the senses.”  Lao Tzu

“At the touch of love everyone becomes a poet.”  Plato

“The only thing we never get enough of is love; and the only thing we never give  enough of is love.”  Henry Miller 

“A healthy self-love means we have no compulsion to justify to ourselves or others why we take vacations, why we sleep late, why we buy new shoes, why we spoil ourselves from time to time. We feel comfortable doing things which add quality and beauty to life.”   Andrew Mathews

  1. Q. Why on Earth each person gives a contradictory meaning to such a simple word called ‘ L O V E ‘

    A. It is because people who think about love and its meaning are the ones who are not in love, they are either hopeful(giving positive meanings) or pessimistic(giving negative meanings) about falling in love.
    The ones who are in love and who may actually give a meaningful description have no time for such academics.

  2. Great quotes both positive and negative..
    For me.. Love is a gift granted by God… Love is the ability to give… Love is unconditional…
