What Is the Meaning & Definition of Love


Love is too difficult to define. How do you avoid confusing it with infatuation or lust? Philosophers and psychologists both have attempted to define love, or at least its difference from infatuation and lust.


  1. A purpose of human life, no matter who is controlling it, is to love whoever is around to be loved.
  2. Love is like a fever which comes and goes quite independently of the will. … there are no age limits for love.
  3. Love can change a person the way a parent can change a baby — awkwardly, and often with a great deal of mess.
  4. Nothing is mysterious, no human relation. Except love.
  5. Love is kind of like when you see a fog in the morning, when you wake up before the sun comes out. It’s just a little while, and then it burns away… Love is a fog that burns with the first daylight of reality.
  6. Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind.
  7. Love, n. A temporary insanity curable by marriage.
  8. Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get — only with what you are expecting to give — which is everything.
  9. Of all forms of caution, caution in love is perhaps the most fatal to true happiness.
  10. What is hell? I maintain that it is the suffering of being unable to love.
  11. Love is an untamed force. When we try to control it, it destroys us. When we try to imprison it, it enslaves us. When we try to understand it, it leaves us feeling lost and confused.
  12. Love does not begin and end the way we seem to think it does. Love is a battle, love is a war; love is a growing up.
  13. Anyone who falls in love is searching for the missing pieces of themselves. So anyone who’s in love gets sad when they think of their lover. It’s like stepping back inside a room you have fond memories of, one you haven’t seen in a long time.
  14. Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.
  15. You can transmute love, ignore it, muddle it, but you can never pull it out of you. I know by experience that the poets are right: love is eternal.
  16. Love is the very difficult understanding that something other than yourself is real.
  17. It is a curious thought, but it is only when you see people looking ridiculous that you realize just how much you love them.
