While Sidney’s work depicts a selfish love, this is a much more selfless love in comparison because the intention of the speaker is for the world to understand how deep his devotion is without expecting a reward for his efforts. The devotion runs deep, even to the point where he will criticize his work meticulously because, in his mind, nothing is good enough. “Nothing could seem too rich to clothe the sun” (1. 11) and it almost
Love is more than complex, it is purely indescribable and I would not advise creating your own definition. Love is so necessary, but inevitably misunderstood in verbal language. Body language and art are the best forms of communicating love in its fullest sense. It seems that all people want love, like Manuel and Esteban, but not all are able to have their need for love filled. Love cannot be measured, because there is no limit for the need of love.
But for Romeo and Juliet, their love for each other was distinctive from others. Nevertheless the love of Romeo and Juliet was true love. Since Romeo and Juliet’s love was forbidden by their family’s, Capulets and Montagues, it made their love stronger. If someone is told they are not aloud something or someone it makes them want it even more. Another thing to remember is Romeo and Juliet were willing to go against their family’s wishes.
As stated by George Sand, “There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved.” This quote by George Sand means that the only way you can be happy is to love someone and be loved by someone. People who are depressed or don’t believe in love, should believe in love because it is the only way to live life. In Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare, the relationship between Claudio and Hero proves to be an ineffective relationship in today’s society due to immaturity and lack of communication, whereas Benedick and Beatrice’s relationship was based on trust and it was emotional to the audience. In the cream of the crop literature, Much Ado About Nothing , Shakespeare displayed that Benedick and Beatrice’s relationship is
Perhaps the most discernible demonstration of individualism in the novel is Cathy and Heathcliff’s love; it is ironic to say that love between two people demonstrates individualism since love automatically suggests that one would put another before themselves. The nature of their love is one where Cathy and Heathcliff are one entity; one cannot do without the other. Their love is not based off of the usual sources such as appearance, lust or even fondness; their love is out of a being a shared being as Cathy says "I am Heathcliff––he's always, always in my mind––not as a pleasure, any more than I am always a pleasure to myself-–but as my own being” (Bronte 44). Their relationship is out of necessity for each other since they are the same person, it is not the type of love where if one had the choice to leave and do without the other person they would not make that choice. When Cathy dies, an astounding level of individualism is demonstrated by Heathcliff when he cries “May she wake in torment!...
We see here that her desire of him is based on his physical appearance and prowess. It is disconnected with love, because if she were to be in love with him, it would be every part of him, but it is only his appearance that she lusts after and wants to remain perfect. Her desire 's however go unfulfilled by him, as he cannot be what she wants him to be. And her perfect world and idealization of him comes crashing down on her in the last line, "not the reflection I desire" (line 12). Here her use of the word desire as her ending line further pushes the fact that this is not necessarily a man that she loves, or she would have said "not the reflection I love", but instead it is that which she desires.
The main thing that differentiate infatuation and love is that infatuation is a short-lived passion for someone while love is a strong emotion formed for someone that lasts the test of time. The reason why the two are so commonly confused is because infatuation is a powerful feeling that can make you think you are in love. There are many reasons for why people mistaken being in love with someone when they are really only infatuated. One of them are because people rush into relationships without getting to know the person on a deep level. There is two sides to each human and when first meeting someone, you will usually get the good side first.
Life is too short to comply with stereotypes about people and not to have the courage to say hi! Look at things from an uncomfortable perspective, look at things with depth, with love, with passion. Feel, close your eyes and feel the breath you take. Smile, smile wide and big. Love, love deeply, don’t love just for the sake of being in love.
Due to today's standard there is a huge focus of why love is so amazing and puts relationships on a pedestal. Reality sets in and many are let down by their significant other and it seems as if they can never be as good as one hopes. The focal point of love should be less focused on romantic love and more on friendship. Music and movies put a huge expectation on relationships that are unrealistic for people to accomplish. Friends know the real you better and can give you better advice.
In the last line, Deon says, “You are safe in my heart and my heart will go on and on” with regards to this line, Deon’s song shows the realistic views on love. However, in Poison’s song, even though they are very close to each other, they are not happy with their relationship. Poison says, “we’re still a mile apart” that means they are separated by how they feel for each other. Poison’s attitude was extremely negative, which shows that love is all about pain. Therefore, Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” has a realistic view of love because it is not as
