Love. L.uh.vuh. What is that? The Webster dictionary defines it as ‘a passionate affection for one of the opposite sex.’ Dictionary.com says it’s ‘a warm personal attachment or deep affection for one.’ These definitions abdicate much room for altercations. They only scratch the surface on an unknown world of the actual meaning. As one who has seen the many faces of love, I feel the need to cast light upon it to all the people whom use it wrong for it is a foreign concept to all. Throughout the years, industries, as well as the everyday common person had warped love into more than one meaning. McDonalds has been advertising for years ‘I’m lovin’ it.’ And Subaru has showcased ‘Love, it’s what makes a Subaru a Subaru.’ Not to mention the billions of people who walk by department stores everyday and say ‘I love that.’ It has become inconceivable to some that ‘liking something very much’, is just not enough. They had to broaden their liking of something to make it better. And over time it lost its meaning. Or the men and women who tell their significant other who they are attracted to, that they love them. When really, they just like them very much. And so, it is not the garnish to a perfect meal. No, love is not greasy, foreign, fake, overly processed, diseased, artery clogging food, nor is it a fancy shmancy car you ride in. Love is not a must have pair of kicks, or a faboo diamond necklace. It is not a cute girl you pass by in the hall, or a skateboard you ride everyday. Love is strange, love is cruel, love is amazing, and without it, the world would not go around.…

Love is the world’s greatest mystery. It is a feeling that holds the most happiness and the most extreme sadness or anger. “Somewhere I have never travelled” by e. E.

Webster's Dictionary defines love as, "A strong feeling of attraction resulting from sexual desire, enthusiasm, or fondness." But to me, love is not just a feeling, it is the way that you treat the ones you care for. Everyone should treat loved ones so considerately through their actions, that they will know that they are loved and cared for. Love in my eyes, is making that sacrifice for someone, knowing that you might regret it sooner or later. Love is how you make another…
From the moment we are born we begin to live. We learn and grow, but we begin to question our lives. We measure them with success of skills, friends, money, and love. In the end we look back and say that we either lived a good life, or we didn’t. What does that mean though? What is it to really live? Many have attempted to define it using concepts like reality, future, past, love, and family, but they all seem too straightforward. Defining something…
