This helps give her the confidence she needs to be with the person that she loves because she has begun to realize that she deserves to choose and that everyone else does too. Ultimately, Condie teaches us that love causes and solves problems, but those problems are the ones that you want to choose.

When an individual thinks about the concept of love, positive thoughts come to mind such as affection, romance, and passion. Love is usually not associated with the negative possible outcomes.

Love is a very powerful emotion that Simmie expresses through her writing. Love can influence your behaviours; such as travelling great distances to be with someone such as Polly, or turn your thoughts irrational and drive you to commit murder, feeling as though it is your only option, in the manner of John
Love in the story is like the energy in a kid, it drives the story and the characters in the story insane. For example, in the story love is what drove Hero into dying and will end killing Tara at the end, “Why should you go on living when she and I are dead? When no one remembers our names?”
Rose considers this vulnerability, and chooses to repel from her instinct to leave. She believes that if something isn’t working, they should try to fix it before they abandon everything they once viewed as irreplaceable, “Don’t you think I ever wanted other things?

“Sarah Cole: A Type of Love Story” is the tale of a young, handsome man who has an affair with, and ends up falling for, “the homeliest woman he has ever seen” but refuses to admit to others and himself that he loves her. The story seems to fit in any day and age, as well as any setting. From the moment we read the title, we know that the story is the tale of a dysfunctional romantic relationship, and the ensuing story does not disappoint. The main character, who is also the narrator, takes us on a journey to ten years prior, when he became involved with a woman named Sarah Cole. It is through the interchanging of first person and third person narration that we realize the reason behind Ron and Sarah’s failed relationship: vanity, shame, and insecurity.

Love that can drive a person to do crazy things, beautiful things. In reality, this is the relationship everyone wishes for, someone to lean on, someone who will always be there for each other. “...Thy husband is thy lord, thy life, thy keeper, Thy head, thy sovereign, one that cares for thee...” (Shakespeare, 5.2 155-159) when Katherine expresses her love for Petruchio.

When asked to define love, people may answer with many different things. The formal definition of love as a noun is an intense feeling of deep affection.

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” (Martin Luther King Jr). Love is the invisible force that wakes you up in the morning and puts you back to sleep, hoping to relive the moment again, or in a simpler sense, it might be random acts of kindness among people that makes up happy, selfless communities. Or it might be a deadly trap for the weak when its powers are abused, but whatever the case, love is important for everyday customs and habits.
Throughout the whole story, each member of the group was sure they knew what love was. However when trying to verbally describe it out loud, none of them could do so well enough to get across what they meant. Mel tried using two different examples but neither explanation ever went anywhere.

Nick and Laura both just knew they loved each other but only being together for eighteen months they were still in their honeymoon phase with their blinders
Francie is heartbroken after finding out that her lover, Lee Rhynor, returned back to his home after war and had married another girl, despite his previous confession of love for Francie. This betrayal causes Francie to lose the last of her innocence, as she was “a girl who had come face to face with some of the evil of the world and most of its hardships, and yet had remained curiously untouched by the world” (463). Francie was six years younger than Lee, and though she was “tremendously innocent” and impressionable during their brief time together, she was deeply in love with him. She snaps back into reality, knowing that those who she truly loves have the ability to break her heart and deceive her, as Lee had done when pretending to be in
It pretty much covers this love throughout the entire story line. Although one example of this is when Romeo and Juliet first meet, Romeo quotes, “O, then, dear saint, let lips do what hands do. They pray; Grant thou, lest faith turn to despair.” (1.5.102-3). In this case Romeo is wanting Juliet to kiss him, which in this same conversation juliet wants the same thing.
