What is love to you? Do you have anything to add?

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves."
-- 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Found this and was just curious about what love is in your eyes...

  • Love is not childish. I like the whole part of the scripture you just posted included:

    When I was a child, I spoke like a child, thought like a child, and reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up my childish ways. 13:11

  • you have to have self love and acceptance before you will ever really be able to have the love that is posted in your question. It is out there...but it starts first inside..

  • Love is accepting a person EXACTLY as they are. All their quirks, their faults and their failures. Love is encouraging and supporting the other person.

  • Love is a VERB. To me that is the most important thing to remember.

    The scripture is one of my favorites and describes how you treat someone you love.

  • Love is knowing the person you're with may not be perfect but they are perfect for *you* and vice versa.
