Love is giving someone the power to destroy you, and trusting them not to.

There’s a thin line between love and hate.

Love and Peace


The most spectacular, indescribable, deep euphoric feeling for someone.

Love is an incredibly powerful word. When you’re in love, you always want to be together, and when you’re not, you’re thinking about being together because you need that person and without them your life is incomplete.

This love is unconditional affection with no limits or conditions: completely loving someone. It’s when you trust the other with your life and when you would do anything for each other. When you love someone, you want nothing more than for them to be truly happy no matter what it takes, because that’s how much you care about them and because their needs come before your own. You hide nothing of yourself and can tell the other anything because you know they accept you just the way you are and vice versa.

Love can make you do anything and sacrifice for what will be better in the end. Love is intense and passionate. Everything seems brighter, happier and more wonderful when you’re in love. If you find it, don’t let it go.



Nature’s way of tricking people into reproducing.



An inexplainable yet incredibly strong feeling for someone.

Most people use the word “love” to get into someone else’s pants. Love is overused in today’s world; people say they love someone because of the way they look or their body. That isn’t love.

Love is when you can’t do anything without thinking about that person, and you always want to be with them. It’s not that you want to have sex with them, you just want to spend time with them and you just want to hold them and never let go.

Love can be foolish; you can think you’re in love and it can lead to the most horrible feeling in the world. Also you can wait so long for someone, loving them, and waiting for them to love you back, but they don’t return it. But when that person realizes that they love you back, it’s miraculous.

Love is a very strong word. Don’t overuse it.



Lust is the desire for their body.
Love is the desire for their soul.

“Love is patient; love is kind and envies no one. Love is never boastful, nor conceited, nor rude; never selfish, not quick to take offence. Love keeps no score of wrongs; does not gloat over another’s sins, but delights in the truth. There is nothing love cannot face; there is not limit to its faith, its hope, and its endurance. In a word, there are three things that last forever: faith, hope, and love; but the greatest of them all is love.” (1 Corinthians 13)

Love. We think about it, sing about it, dream about it, lose sleep worrying about it. When we don’t have it, we search for it; when we discover it, we don’t know what to do with it; and when we have it, we fear losing it.

It is the constant source of pleasure and pain. But we can’t predict which it will be from one moment to the next.

It is a short word, easy to spell, difficult to define, and impossible to live without.



Avoid if at all possible.

True Love is not blind… if you love the person you’ll see their flaws, but still consider them beautiful.

You’ll notice the little pimples they have all over their face, you’ll notice how short they are, you’ll notice that there’s plenty more beautiful people than that person.

Yet, you still love them.

A word that guys use over and over so they can get into girls’ pants.



It’s what starry-eyed lovers whisper as they gaze at an ocean sunset, what 8-year-olds shout to their mothers as they sprint toward the already departing morning bus heading for school, and what teenage lovers tell each other in the heat of the moment.

It’s supposed to be the deepest level of emotional connection between people, yet society has transformed it into a pop-icon phrase to be screened onto glittery fuchsia tank tops and written inside Hallmark cards with pastel bunnies and butterflies dancing on the cover.

The phrase, of course, is “I love you.” Love has become such as complex emotion, to the extent of which we are uncertain what it truly signifies and when it is the “real thing”.



When you care for someone so much, you put their needs ahead of your own, even if sometimes it really hurts.

Being lame together while not caring about what other people think.



Love is too good for words.
