WHAT IS LOVE?
I would like to share you this question and answers how they make definitions other peoples and educators so we heard every time the word called love therefore we need to know what is love?
Firstly, we are sharing these stories:
In 1981 Prince Charles announced his engagement to Diana Spencer.
In a now-infamous TV interview about their upcoming wedding, journalist Anthony Carthew asked the couple how they felt. Charles hesitantly explained that he was pleased and happy, prompting Carthew to add `… and I suppose…… in love? ’ . Diana quickly agreed, but Charles was far more circumspect, mumbling `…… whatever “in love” means’.
Charles is not the first to be discomfited by the nature of love. Throughout history, poets, musicians and writers have fought to define this most elusive of emotions. The Ancient Greek philosopher Aristotale thought that love was best viewed as ` … a single soul inhabiting two bodies’ , whereas Elizabeth Barrett Browning attempted to capture the essence of passion when she wrote: ‘ What I do and what I dream include thee, as the wine must taste of its own grapes….’ In contrast, the American actor John Barrymore took a somewhat more practical view, noting that: ‘ Love is the delightful interval between meeting a beautiful girl and discovering that she looks like a haddock.’
Although it is difficult to define love, there is little doubt that the emotion has always intrigued us.
Archaeologists working in Iraq’s Niffer Valley recently unearthed the world’s oldest surviving love letter. Etched into a 4,000 year-old clay tablet, the love poem appears to have been written by a high priestess to her husband and describes her excitement about their forthcoming wedding night (‘Goodly is your beauty, honeysweet. You have captivated me. Let me stand tremblingly before you. Can I borrow a tenner until the end of the week?’*).
Love also knows no cultural bounds. From the Amazon to Arizona, and the Sahara to Siberia, people in vastly different societies all appear to experience the joys and pains of passion.
