Not in words, but short in deeds.

Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses.

Ann Landers

You hear the word expressed for every object that pleases your senses.

The word is tossed around today with little thought of its meaning. Whenever a word is used without thought, its true meaning becomes lost.

Love is a powerful word, not in the word but in meaning. I feel the word has been used with little regard for its true meaning.

When you look at this word in literary meaning, here’s what the dictionary has to say.

love | ləv | noun:

1 An intense feeling of deep affection: babies fill parents with intense feelings of love | their love for their country. • a deep romantic or sexual attachment to someone: they were both in love with her | we were slowly falling in love | it was love at first sight. • affectionate greetings conveyed to someone on one’s behalf. • a formula for ending an affectionate letter: take care, lots of love, Judy. • (Love) a personified figure of love, often represented as Cupid.
