Love

Let's talk about love. It's everywhere and is a vital part of all our lives. Love is universal. It defies cultural barriers, and quotes about love can speak to us all. 

Love is something that can bring us as much joy as it can sorrow. It is completely real and, therefore, extremely powerful. Love can drive us to madness or motivate us to live our best lives, depending on how we use it (or embrace it). 

There are different ways people around the world experience love. For instance, there's the romantic type of love that we feel for our boyfriend, girlfriend, husband or wife. For most people curious about love, it's this romantic love for someone that gets the greatest amount of attention.

However, there's also the love that we feel for our friends and family. For some, this love can even extend to communities, nations and the world. 

Love is a word that we can define in so many different ways because it is fluid and constantly changing based on the situation.

Maybe there's someone you love who doesn't love you back, or perhaps you have just recently broken up with a boyfriend or girlfriend you are in love with. Or maybe you're still smitten with your partner, enjoying the "honeymoon" stage while it lasts. Whether your experiences with love have been heartbreaking or comforting, you likely understand that love is a complex and fickle thing to hold on to.

There's the joy of your first love that you never forget (even if the two of you don't end up together). Then, of course, there's the enduring, long-term love that comes from two people who spend their lives together.
