Love is from

love     P   Pronunciation Key  (lv)
1. A deep, tender, ineffable feeling of affection and solicitude
toward a person, such as that arising from kinship, recognition of
attractive qualities, or a sense of underlying oneness.
2. A feeling of intense desire and attraction toward a person with
whom one is disposed to make a pair; the emotion of sex and romance.
3. An intense emotional attachment, as for a pet or treasured object.
4. A person who is the object of deep or intense affection or
attraction; beloved. Often used as a term of endearment.
5. An expression of one's affection: Send him my love. 
6. Love Mythology. Eros or Cupid.
7. often Love Christianity. Charity.
8. Sports. A zero score in tennis.

But these are the definitions which are agreed upon by a bunch of guys
sitting behind a room for the sake of putting a definition in a book
(or on a website per se). As for what others think, I direct you to which grabs certain text strings and puts them in the
form of "who" "what" "where" "when". A short listing of what is love
follows below:

love is the killer app
love is a rose
love is the salvation
love is a dog from hell personals

love is melody?top????
love is all around

more are here:

As for my personal opinion? Love is selflessness. Love is wanting
whomever you're loving (whether it be your spouse,
girlfriend/boyfriend, friend, dog, etc.) to be as happy as possible,
even at your own expense. Love is one of the most beautiful emotions
humans can have, and others such as charity, compassion, and even the
very essence of humanity are just expressions of love.

For a psychological view on "love" I found a nice multi-part article
written by Shelly Wu, Ph.D. She analyzes the way it's been viewed in
the past and present by such notable Psychologists as Freud. It's
quite interesting. Read it here:

But what is love to you? That's the question only you can answer...
hope I helped you on your way to answering it. Thanks for your
question, I had a fun time answering it.

I've heard it said that love is a condition that arises when the
happiness and well-being of another are essential to your own
happiness and well-being.  :-)

From the Bible. First John 4;8 " He that does not love has not come to
know God, because GOD IS LOVE".
Jesus speaking... John 16;27 " The Father himself [ God] has affection
for you, because you have had affection for me and have believed that
I came out as the Father`s representative".
John 15; 12 & 13.." This is my commandment, that you love one another
just as I have loved you". 13. "No one has love greater than this,
that someone should surrender his soul [ life] in behalf of his

And one more. First Corinthians 13; 3..."And if I give all my
belongings to feed others, and if I hand over my body, that I may
boast, BUT DO NOT HAVE LOVE, I am not profited at all. 4. Love is long
suffering and kind. Love is not jealous, it does not brag, does not
get puffed up.5. Does not behave indecently, does not look for its own
interests, does not become provoked. It does not keep account of the
injury.6. It does not rejoice over unrighteousness, but rejoices with
the truth. 7. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all
things, endures all things, 8. love never fails......
