I wonder as well, and am always wondering about the true meaning of love and its mysterious depths and extents. Sometimes I feel as if I understand it, but deep down, I honestly don't. Some people tell me love is when you'd jump in front of someone and take a bullet for them, but I wouldn't. Some people tell me love is God, but I don't know him to be certain. Some people tell me it's life, but it has too many downsides for me to be sure.
love /lʌv/ [luhv] noun, verb, loved, lov⋅ing.
noun 1. a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person. 2. a feeling of warm personal attachment or deep affection, as for a parent, child, or friend. 3. sexual passion or desire. 4. a person toward whom love is felt; beloved person; sweetheart. 5. (used in direct address as a term of endearment, affection, or the like): Would you like to see a movie, love? 6. a love affair; an intensely amorous incident; amour. 7. copulation. 8. (initial capital letter) a personification of sexual affection, as Eros or Cupid. 9. affectionate concern for the well-being of others: the love of one's neighbor. 10. strong predilection, enthusiasm, or liking for anything: her love of books. 11. the object or thing so liked. 12. the benevolent affection of God for His creatures, or the reverent affection due from them to God.
I think they all have a corelation with each other, some element in all that remains the same. Some thread weaving that web we call 'Love' that relates all its meanings and us human beings to each other in some shape or form, controvesial or not. Though one definition might be completely and utterly different from another, they are all connected and are the same in essense. And so are we all, connected.

MY DREAM IS FOR EVERY CHILD'S DREAM TO COME TRUE!!
~ Every kid has a dream, and my dream is for them to have the opportunity to live their ultimate dream! Okay i said to many dreams there but yeah, that's my DREAM! I just feel so sad when i hear stories that kids can't follow their true passion because there are a lot of hindrances that keep them from doing it. I believe that every kid has the RIGHT to follow what they really want to become when they grow up. I believe that PARENTS are the most essential part in every child's step of following their dream. They must encourage and uplift their kids in order for them to gain self-confidence and pursue their passion. That's what my parents did to me, and now, i'm still happy that i get to enrich my talents that God gave me.
~ Children are as white as snow; pure and innocent. The only thing that corrupts them, is the OUTSIDE WORLD that surrounds them. So before that happens, we must not ignore what these kids' hearts are yearning for. That's why it saddens me when I see adults hindering their kids from their dreams. Don't they know that WE ARE THE FUTURE? Without us, there is no future!
"God dreams through the pure and innocent hearts of children."
