What is Love?

It’s natural for a Romantic to take up such lofty questions before they become raving mad.
(It’s part of the programming.)

The question, however, is valid whether you’re a Romantic or not, and we have plenty of contributions from Philosophers throughout the Ages, but still we seek to define it, explain it, experience it.

What is Love?

Well I finally stumbled on a definition that feels right for me at this point of my life.

As usual, I hate the shackles of convention (I shed as many of them as possible) and the same holds true for language. And concepts. And definitions. I don’t like words that imply we are not whole unless we find our soulmate, etc. The missing piece of the puzzle formula.

Well, no missing pieces here …

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.

Lao Tzu
