What on earth is Love?



Digital Collage by Itkupilli

I think I just had a post about love...or something like that...but anyway here are once more some quotes....I don't understand...beats me....you tell me...

To fear love is to fear life, and those who fear life are already three parts dead.

Bertrand Arthur William Russell : British philosopher, mathematician & social reformer
Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970)


We are all born for love. . . . It is the principle of existence, and its only end.

Benjamin Disraeli : British statesman, prime minister & writer
Benjamin Disraeli (1804 - 1881)


Life without love is like a tree without blossom and fruit.

Khalil Gibran :

Of all forms of caution, caution in love is perhaps the most fatal to true happiness.

Bertrand Arthur William Russell : British philosopher, mathematician & social reformer
Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970)



Doubt that the stars are fire Doubt that the sun doth shine Doubt that truth be a liar But never doubt that I love.

William Shakespeare : English poet, the greatest poet ever
William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)
Source: Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, Act 2, Scene 2

Very interesting - that extra hand there - and I love your work, as always.

As for quotes regarding LOVE? I enjoyed each and every one you listed. Even so, perhaps a few more wouldn't hurt:
"God is love." - Scripture
"Love is all you need." - The Beatles
"Love Stinks" - J. Geils Band

I think, therefore I love. I love, I think....ah, don't think about it....love

Mick,

You're kind as always, thanks, and thanks for the quotes, there is never too much light...

*ItkUpiLLi* said...

Jimm,
Do you? I do.

okjimm said...

Yes. I will have to be very busy in a short work week. look for mail tonight.

*ItkUpiLLi* said...

Ok Jimm!

LOL!

I love you two!

Goodmorning, Good Afternoon, and Good Evening, Kirsi.

And Good Morning, Okjimm...!

*ItkUpiLLi* said...

Oh Banana,
You are early up! Nice to see you so fresh, after so late party…

Ana Banana said...

oh no, party was not late for me at all. I think okjimm is feeling a bit tired maybe. But it was for a good purpose. You see, late at night, when one feels as if he has been very, very bad, one sometimes feel the strong and immediate urge to repent and confess things that he might not have confessed otherwise. I feel happy that the confession is out in the open now! -- you two!

love is in the air...lalala!

Ana Banana said...

Love the Doors video, by the way. And I especially love the image...it appears she finally has company.

Okay, Kirsi, okjimm...I am going to take a brief break from all this clowning around. I really need to start working on some art. I'll pop-in once in a while though.

Love to you both, dear friends.

*ItkUpiLLi* said...

I don’t know if Jimm is much laughing to day, but I must admit that I’m smiling…I can't keep secrets anyway...:))

Ah, a post about love! I wonder why? hee hee... ;)

This is delightful.

I'm singing along with Singing Hawk..

Ode to Kirsi and OkJimm

Love is in the air
Everywhere I look around
Love is in the air
Every sight and every sound
And I don't know if I'm being foolish
Don't know if I'm being wise
But it's something that I must believe in
And it's there when I look in your eyes

Love is in the air
In the whisper of the tree
Love is in the air
In the thunder of the sea
And I don't know if I'm just dreaming
Don't know if I feel safe
But it's something that I Must believe in
And it's there when you call out my name

Love is in the air
Love is in the air

Love is in the air
In the rising of the sun
Love is in the air
When the day is nearly done
And I don't know if you are an illusion
Don't know if I see truth
But you are something that I must believe in
And you are there when I reach out for you

Love is in the air
Everywhere I look around
Love is in the air
Every sight and every sound
And I don't know if I'm being foolish
Don't know if I'm being wise
But it's something that I must believe in
And it's there when I look in your eyes

Love is in the air
Love is in the air

Love is in the air
Love is in the air

Hi/Kiss/Chau

*ItkUpiLLi* said...

Oh Professor Daniel,

You are so cute
and so right:)

SusuPetal said...

All people need is the feeling of being loved. That's the basic thing. Most of bad feelings come from the lack of being loved and accepted.

The fear of love, the impossibility to love, is often due to rejection one has experienced sometime. It requires trust to be ready for love, to love oneself, to let oneself to be loved.

To love or not to love,
that is not the question.
The answer is to love.

(Höh, miksi ei Bloglista näyttänyt, että olet päivittänyt tänään? Hmm. )

*ItkUpiLLi* said...

Amen Susu

We try to protect us not to get hurt; we don’t dare to let anyone come too close.

Love is dangerous to our ego. But it’s essential for our spirit.

There are only two choices: fear and love, and after all there is no choice. Love is strongest. Denial of love hurts so bad…but we must get through it.

And love and let us to be loved.

Kirsi...are you there,hu, here? I, was up a little late last night...I guess I talked with AnaB for a while. hmmmmmm!

JoA.....that song? isn't it the theme to the 'Love Boat'? Really, you can do better than that..:) The theme to the 'Adams Family' that may be more appropriate for our little group....hmmmmm?

kirsi...//There are only two choices: fear and love,/// yes....and then there are those that are afraid to love. Maybe those are the saddest of all. I think I was one of those.

I must be brief tonight. Miriam has called. It seems that there is an opposum that has taken up residence under the compost bin at her mother's house. She has chosen me to give the animal and eviction notice. Very worried that the possum may make lunch/or supper out of the dog. It is always nice to know that a father is good for something. I am going to yahoo.

peace to all....

okjimm said...

oh, love is also evicting a large rodent from the compost heap of your ex-wife because your daughter asks you to.

Love is also like peanut butter....
it is very nutrious and sticks to the roof of your mouth;)

okjimm said...
