what is love?
“Of course I am not referring to those outbursts of passion that drive us to do and say things we will later regret, that delude us into thinking we cannot live without a certain person, that set us quivering with anxiety at the mere possibility we might ever lose that person- a feeling that impoverishes rather than enriches us because we long to possess what we cannot, to hold on what we cannot.
“No. I speak of a love that brings sight to the blind. Of a love stronger than fear. I speak of love that breathes meaning into life, that defies the natural laws of deterioration, that causes us to flourish, that knows no bounds. I speak of the triumph of the human spirit over selfishness and death.”
