What is Love?

The question is: what is love?

"[Love is] Indescribable. [Al]though love flows from deep within your heart, you don't know where it comes from or where it's going. It's formless. You can't hold onto it nor can you get rid of it. Even the most beautiful of poetry only depicts the elementary of love, but not the true meaning of it. If you can grasp hold of it, then it's no longer love. Don't you get it? You'll understand the true significance of love only after you've lost it. When you go up against the whole world out of fear of losing it, when you realize that without love your world has no meaning, when she runs into the arms of another man, and you want to turn the world into a living hell in your rage, then from the ashes of agony will you experience the meaning of love."
-A Chinese Ghost Story, 2003

My thoughts: "Finally, someone have found the perfect words.
In less than a paragraph but more than a quote, someone have found love's definition."

When I saw this lesson/lecture/conversation, I was deeply moved. We, as part of being a living human, had all wished for love at one point in time. While some were lucky to have found love and kept it safe, others were not so lucky. They found love only to have lost it all over again, and then they believed that love is cruel. Yet, they don't understand that it is simply their experienced pain that will determined true love. I know that a person's first love will always be the most painful, the deepest, and the most unforgettable experience, but there will come a time when it will all be worth it. A person's first love does not necessarily have to be a person's last love. Yes, the first one will always hurt the most, but the last one will heal that wound and make it a 100x better. A person's first love may or may not be forever, but do keep in mind that as long as a person have found their last love, then forever that love shall last. Thus, never lose hope in love. Love is an unknown force; it can strike you anytime it want. So if you ever feel like you will never be able to find love, then stop and let love find you instead. It might take a while but it will be worth the wait in the end, correct? :)
