The Reasons of Love?
What exactly is love? An attachment?, an inexcusable feeling?, perheps an unbreakable bond?
In Harry G Frankfurt's short novel "The Reasons of Love", he describes love as "understanding, and or, responsive." We begin loving the things that we love because we are struck by their value. If we did not find the beloved valuable , we would not love it."
"At times, we speak of people or of other things as "unworthy" of our love. Perheps this means that the cost of loving them would be greater than the benefit of doing so."
My explination of love is something more fragile. When I think of love I automatically think of people, wether I know them or not has no affect on me. Love to me is concerning, and unconditional. To me it is an unbreakable bond. Yes it may benifit me, and another, but it is love.
WHAT IS LOVE TO YOU? IS IT VALUEABLE TO YOU? WHY DO YOU LOVE?
