What is Love? Love, according to the Holy Bible, is patient and kind. Love does not envy or boast and is not proud. Love never fails (NIV 811). Th***** simple term for the most powerful emotion in the world is simply not enough. Love is all these things, it has the ability to empower and increase confidence, to lighten a mood or make the ***** seem a better place. Yet it also has the abil*****y to always makes us feel useless, like a newborn child or tot*****lly incapable of doing the most simplest ***** tasks.

Therefore, what is this intangible emotion ***** power that can leave us without any control over ourselves and increases our vulnerability to being hurt? The Oxford New English Dictionary defines Love as being "a deep romantic or sexual attachment ***** someone" (***** English Dictionary 1094). If love w***** as simple as ***** definition ********** the l*****s Gods and Goddess, such as Cupid ***** Venus, *****ould have an easy time in br*****ging people together. However, if we look at myths and legends surrounding ***** characters this job was certainly not *****.

This may be despite the knowledge of ***** flaws *****, ***** a result of the choice, not see these ***** due to their love for this person. Here we ***** a*****o see ***** there may be seen that there is difficulty in separating love, passion and infatuation as they overlap.

If we look at lovers we may see them walking down the street hand in hand, their hearts pound*****g as they feel the hand and pulse of their **********, the way their lover smiles or the sweet fragrance of their ***** perfume. This is how strong this emotion is, eliciting a physiological response. To hear y***** *****'s voice even after a few minutes of silence is to some like the soft music of angels.

***** sometimes this love can be bitter***** ***** ***** all things love ***** turn sour leaving lovers hurt and in pain from the sadness of betrayal.

Love conquers all ***** life, f***** when Love does turn ***** a broken *****t can never be repaired. There is also ***** problem of unrequited love, *****ever, many would argue that ***** is a lesser form of love; not true love.

*****, when ***** ***** come in***** a person's life it ***** be most wondrous experience ever felt. L*****erature and art is full ***** works inspired by love. The urge to write poems, ***** listen to soft songs ***** you once thought silly or to
