Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Yes, that is a quote from someone else; I think it is more fun to see how many people know off the top of their heads than make it obvious with the citation. ;)

Now there are a lot of things called "love" for lack of a better term. This distinction is pretty important because of - for example - the physiological aspects of "romantic love" and how those can easily amount to nothing more than "lust". How that as well as other forms of "love" can degenerate into mere "possessiveness". Probably several other forms of "tainted love" (...it really was the best term I could come up with XD) that make it really easy to be confused about the matter. ^^'

I will add that it isn't just an "emotion" but an "action". A lot of people chase after "infatuation" and "lust", sometimes "satisfaction" and it blinds them to ever really experiencing the real thing.

As for me, I wait patiently (...okay often impatiently) on the sidelines, trying to understand and hoping to one day apply that knowledge. Well, with respect to "romantic" love. With other forms, I am too often failing. =P Kind of why I keep holding off on that one.


Every time I have had that read during a wedding I want to poke my eyes out. Not sure how to pronounce the name of the source, is it bibble?

I'll try to answer it the best way possible. To me, love is selfless & two people truly care about each other.

Love is finding rabbits, killing them, and leaving them on the front step, apparently.

love is... giving someone the power to hurt you (beyond what can even be properly explained with words), but trusting them not to do so..
This is my philosophical perspective of love at least. hope it doesn't sound sad but love can be..

"What Is Love" is a song recorded by Trinidadian-German Eurodance artist Haddaway for his debut album, The Album. It was written and produced by Dee Dee Halligan (Dieter Lünstedt a.k.a. Tony Hendrik) and Junior Torello (Karin Hartmann-Eisenblätter a.k.a. Karin van Haaren) of Coconut Records in Cologne. Recorded in the early 1990s, it later experienced a revival as the song from the Saturday Night Live "Roxbury Guys" sketches (later expanded into a movie called A Night at the Roxbury), where two brothers played by Chris Kattan and Will Ferrell frequently went to dance clubs with a third person (including actors such as Sylvester Stallone and Jim Carrey), credited as "Barhop".

"What Is Love" peaked at number 2 in the United Kingdom and Germany and hit number 1 in 13 other countries. Bowing at number 87 on 28 August 1993, the song reached number 11 on the Hot 100 in the United States. The song also peaked at number 12 in Australia. By March 1994, worldwide sales of "What Is Love" had already reached 2.6 million.[3]

I bought that film on the strength that it was based on that song/sketch, I guess it goes without saying I was disappointed. It was just like Convoy all over again

A wonderful thing maybe the most wonderful thing in life well next to anime.

That feeling of wanting to be by someone's side forever that you would do anything for them and want to see them happy is refreshing and great :blush:

Sadly love comes and goes quickly for a lot of people these days myself included I mean I can fall in love with someone then be hurt then move on and eventually fall in love with someone again...I'm a hopeless romantic T-T

Judging by my friends and family it clearly makes your head go soft for year to two.
