philosophical definition of LOVE

Love doesn’t need dates, treats, gifts, money, sex or extreme kissing to realize that you’re finally in love. It only needs the “comfort and security of having a lifetime friend in the person”. If despite all the consequences, the feeling does not die out instead it grows stronger, then, it must be it!

  1. Learn to love

    Learn to love challenge, and you’ll fill your life with accomplishment. Learn to love effort, and your skills will grow more valuable with each passing day.
    Learn to love making a difference, and doors will quickly open for you wherever you go. Learn to love giving freely of yourself, and you’ll receive more fulfillment than you ever could imagine.

    Learn to love being the authentic person you are, and everything you do will be infused with integrity. Learn to love whatever work you’re doing, and that work will bring abundant rewards.

    Learn to love beauty for beauty’s sake, and you’ll discover a wealth of it in places no one else would even think to look. Learn to love unconditionally, and there will be no limit to what your love can accomplish.

    Learn to love life just because it is, and each day will be a grand new adventure. Learn to love the moment you’re in, and you’ll find richness in every direction.

    Learn to love the possibilities, and you’ll make your way to whatever you seek. Learn to love no matter what, and you’ll discover what miracle you truly are.

  2. There are many definition of love but I prefer this one:

    Love is the quiet understanding and mature acceptance of imperfection. It is real. It gives you strength and grows beyond you – to bolster your beloved. You are warmed by their presence, even when they are away. Miles do not separate you. You have so many wonderful little films in your head that you keep replaying. But near or far, you know they are yours, and you can wait.

  3. sir joe, i do agree po with your definition especially the words IT IS REAL!

    yes, love is so real. and everyone can have love once in a while. we may naot see it at times but we can feel it.

    like what the movie ever after, da vinci once said “Life without love, is no life at all.”

    indeed we all live because of love

  4. Love is a yardstick, going through the point from rejection to acceptance, love is a maturing process, it is God’s gift to enable us to understand why we should be on His side.

  5. hi mer, indeed, it is God’s gift.

    grabeh napak broad talaga ng love…. but one thing is for sure… it is UNCONDITIONAL

    “Love is the irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired.” – Mark Twain

  7. thanks to this sir joe. grabe ang dami talagang meaning ng love. mejo nakakawindang ano?

    the definition of love varies depending on the person involved. it only means that love is still love but as long as it reaches the hearts of two individuals it has its own meaning.

    kaya kanya kanya yan. walang paki alamanan. hehe

  8. (v.t. & n.) (opposite: hate) a very ambiguous term
    1. a subset of emote (v.t.), or emotion (n.)
    a. enjoying the love object
    b. desiring to benefit the love object
    c. desiring to possess the love object
    2. a subset of willful effort
    a. effort to benefit the love object
    b. effort to possess the love object
    3. some combination of the above that doesn’t count as love unless all ingredients are present
    e.g. Does it count as love if:
    you want to benefit the love object only because you’re paid to?
    you want to keep something alive that would be better off dead?
    you would destroy the love object if you can’t possess it?
    Love is not a relationship, unless you count unilateral action as relationship. e.g. Me loving you does not imply you loving me – or having any relationship to me. It may begin a relationship, and may cause that relationship to continue, but it is not defined by the relationship. It is defined by its effect on an individual.
