True love is possibly the most fulfilling of life's secret treasures. but love by a lesser standard is still extremely important for the human experience. In the poem True Love by Wislawa Szymborska Wislawa talks of how true love is overrated and unnecessary. But in truth the argument against true love is created to comfort those who lack it. Love, if not true love is an crucial emotion for the human race; it is important for psychological development, social development, and in the end happiness.
Cyrano tries to be just as thoughtful throughout the play in order to bring joy to other people, it may come at his expense and pain, but he’s willing to do whatever as long as it makes other people happy. ‘Do you find Christian...intellectual?’ ‘More so than you, even.’ ‘I am glad’” (Rostand 106). Instead of going after Roxane, he tries to set her up with Christian because Cyrano thinks that he’s not good enough for someone so beautiful, “I know--afraid that when you have her all alone, you lose all. Have no fear. It is yourself she loves--give her yourself put into words--my words, upon your lips!” (Rostand 100).
We live in a society that has increasingly demoralizes love, depicting it as cruel, superficial and full of complications. Nowadays it is easy for people to claim that they are in love, even when their actions say otherwise, and it is just as easy to claim that they are not when they indeed are. Real love is difficult to find and keeping it alive is even harder, especially when one must overcome their own anxieties and uncertainties to embrace its presence. This is the main theme depicted in Russell Banks’ short story “Sarah Cole: A Type of Love Story,” as well as in Richard Bausch’s “The Fireman’s Wife.” These narratives, although similar in some ways, are completely different types of love stories. “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 of Lanval and the Theme of Love Love is a powerful theme in many stories and shows what one will do for love. It is and emotion that is quite strong, and many will stop at nothing to seek love. Love knows no boundaries and it does not matter if you are rich, poor, old, or young, it will find a way to come into different people’s lives. One of the stories we read was “Milun” by Marie De France and shows countless examples of how powerful love actually is. I chose to write about another story that Marie De France wrote which is “Lanval”, and this too has similar powerful examples of love.
He then goes on to articulate the weaknesses of earning loyalty as a result of love and supports the value of his favored technique, fear. He convinces the listener by stressing the fact that fear controls man’s actions because the thought of punishment stays with them, whereas feelings of love last only as long as they are happy, which is a fleeting emotion. Machiavelli’s conclusion is erroneous. Although he is correct on some levels, in the end, a population of people who share good morale, work better together to accomplish common goals. Though a ruler may be successful for a time, if people fear opposing him or they see some level of success
“I found the truth beneath your lies, and true love never has to hide” Once you’ve decided on a course of forgiveness, the next step is rebuilding trust, and Compared to William Shakespeare’s “Othello” about a love that claimed to be true, but was plagued by alleged scandal and jealousy in which ultimately led to its demise, “All Night” Sang by Beyoncé claims that true love can overcome any obstacle that may come its way. When in a relationship, or simply in love one may experience deep pain and disappointment, but a true love, will always be able to come out on the other side, although it may take some time, the relationship will be able to rebuild, rekindle, and refocus and above all will be determined to keep going. The song “All
Lucie, however, disagrees and assures him that the best part of his life may still be yet to come and desperately asks him if she can save him. Carton expresses to Lucie that his love for her is unselfish. He does not expect her to return his love, but he will remain loyal to her and do everything in his power to help her. Carton declares, “For you, and for any dear to you, I would do anything. If my career of sacrifice in it, I would embrace any sacrifice for you and for those dear to you.” (117) Carton holds true to this vow when he takes Darnay’s place in the prison.
Healthy and successful relationships are based on a mutual respect, appreciation and a deep love rooted in trust. Most couples establish a sustainable relationship over a long period of time, rather than fixating on physical attraction and carnal desires. In truth, love is often mistaken for lust. In Romeo and Juliet, one can see the misinterpretation of infatuation for true love. Lust overcomes the couple’s actions and causes them to continuously make rash decisions without any consideration of the consequences.
Katherine/Kat fall in love with Petruchio/Patrick but fight against these feelings as they see it as going against their own beliefs. They are almost willing to live without the happiness of the relationship just to stick to their own rigid beliefs. Neither woman sees a way to follow her heart and her ideals at the same time. IS THERE SOMETHING IN THE TEXT THAT WOULD SHOW THIS? In the end the heart wins out and the women do find that they are with a man that loves and respects their own sense of independance.
He is honestly the sweetest boy I have ever met, he is always there for me when I need someone. He knows me, he knows when my mood changes just the littlest, he is always trying to make me happier and make sure I am okay. I still get butterflies sometimes also. I don’t think other people should judge other peoples relationships if they are with someone of a different race. It isn’t fair to the two in the relationship because you don’t know that person.
