What is Love?

“Love is life. And if you miss love, you miss life”. – Leo Buscaglia

After a weekend spent celebrating my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary, I pondered on the meaning of love. What is love? Is it romantic love, motherly love, love of a special pet or love of doing something? Is it passion, tenderness, warmth or happiness? Is it even explainable in words or best understood by actions and feelings?

I put together a gallery of what love means to me. It can mean so many different things to different people but for me love is…

Family

“The family is one of nature’s masterpieces”. – George Santayana

Compassion

“The highest virtue is to act without a sense of self. The highest kindness is to give without condition”. – Lao-Tzu

Warmth

“The best way to pay for a lovely moment is to enjoy it”. – Richard Bach

Doing

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees”. – John Muir

Making a difference

“Go within every day and find the inner strength so that the world will not blow your candle out”. – Katherine Dunham

What does love mean to you?

    • I thought of that Debbie too! But since my in-laws just had their big 50th anniversary party and we all flew out to VA over the weekend. It was really inspiring!
