What is Love?

   
Love is bigger than you are. You can invite love, but you cannot dictate how, when, and where love expresses itself. You can choose to surrender to love, or not, but in the end love strikes like lightening, unpredictable and irrefutable. You can even find yourself loving people you don't like at all.... Love does not come with conditions, stipulations, addendums, or codes. Like the sun, love radiates independently of our fears and desires.
                                                                       ~Deborah Anapol, Ph.D.

   
Love is like a virus. It can happen to anybody at any time.
Maya Angelou
Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.
Aristotle
Love possesses not nor will it be possessed, for love is sufficient unto love.

Khalil Gibran

There is no remedy for love but to love more. ~Henry David Thoreau

Often times in the search for love, there is rejection. Some twitter fun:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
