When one has fully entered the realm of love, the world – no matter how imperfect – becomes rich and beautiful – it consists solely of opportunities for love.

Soren Aabye Kierkegaard (1813 – 1855)

  1. Depends what is meant by “love”. I remain confused about what is meant by love.

    • CherryPie says:

      When I talk of love this describes what I mean:

      “the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another”

      But to be true to that thought means leaving the other person to be free to choose their own path in life. Unconditional love.

      Anything other is not really love of the other person, it is more about how a person feels about themselves.

      I have tried to be brief, so I hope I haven’t been too confusing!
