Eleonore Stump argues that love is the desire for the objective good and union with the beloved. Stump comes to this view by first dissecting the relational, volitional and responsiveness accounts of love. Stump uses the example of Dante Alighieri and Beatrice as proof that the relational account for love is flawed. According to the relational account, Dante Alighieri did not love Beatrice because he had no real relationship with her and only admired her from afar. This unbelievable for Stump, as she believes Dante clearly had strong feelings for Beatrice that are not being measured or acknowledged by the relational account (Stump, 2006).
People can find their way on their own, but other times they need a push. In the beginning, Cassia makes it very evident that she believes that the Society is as close to perfect as any society could and has gotten. She also feels that here is no need, nor reason to want to stand out, but when her grandfather and Ky express that the society is wrong through illegal objects, Cassia starts to understand. Love causes problems and feelings that you hate, but hate you are willing to feel. As the plot progresses, Cassia realizes that she loves both Xander and Ky, but she loves Xander in a different way then she loves Ky. To want to grow, you have to want the change that comes along with it.
Relationships are the core of everything we do in life. We love someone, so we do something for them; we value someone 's opinion, so we respect them; we dislike someone, so we avoid them. Relationships cause people to act on their emotions which impact how and why they do the things they do. Ernest Hemingway’s short story “Hills Like White Elephants” is about a couple trying to come to a conclusion on a delicate matter. While the man strongly promotes his opinion the girl is hesitant but wants to do whatever will make him happy.

In “Bedecked”, Redel raises attention about the different approaches to parenting in a situation when a parent’s son is more flamboyant than society would deem acceptable. Redel can handle the criticism and “other mothers looking”, but wanted none of it to change the purity of how her son “loves a beautiful thing not for what it means- / this way or that”(16-17). She ends her poem by asking readers if their “heart was ever once that brave”, for going against social norms and not confining to them (21-20). In addition to the older woman and younger man double standard, Calbert's “In Praise of My Young Husband” lists examples of the world’s different romances to note that there is not just one single type: “young lovers like to drink too much / and make a drunken, careless love, / why couples always cook so much” (19-22). Romance comes in all different forms and sizes, and Calbert understands that along with these she apprends why people fall in and out of love.
“Rappaccini & Aylmer” In the short stories “The Birthmark” and “Rappaccini’s Daughter”, failed attempts to gain perfection are a frequent subject. They both have male protagonist who have fascinations to recreate a woman into their own view of perfection. Yet at the end the women are completely destroyed. The two stories teach a moral lesson. That moral lesson is to accept things the way they are and value them, people should be satisfied with what they are given by nature, not try to change anything because trying to change things to the way we would like them to be, can often destroy them.
Due to the fact that Dimmesdale and Hester could not even ignore their initial attraction, the passion that carries throughout their relationship is undeniable. The love they posses for one another only grows stronger as their community and religion constantly reiterates how the should not be together. Not only having admiration for one other, once their child come into the world, they both carry intense amounts of devotion towards keeping it safe. Though Dimmesdale is scared to admit, it is adamant to readers that he cares for her even more so than himself. As Pearl faces the same shame as her parents, such as being called “an imp of evil, emblem and product of sin" (Hawthorne, 129), her need for care and attention grows larger.
Through the early bonding period with her father, the daughter has developed affection towards the father, whenever she speaks of him, there are tears of love and memories and that clouds her emotion. She’s so defensive of her whenever there are attempts to criticize him on every aspect of his traits or work. Jack, on the other hand, do not value any form of friendship and compassion towards the group that he should be working for, all he cares for is exercising control and manipulations to fuel his egocentric
This tells me that even if he were to marry someone else, it wouldn’t mean anything to him because he loves his wife and he would rather have his wife than any other woman. In conclusion, I think Odysseus is heroic because of his intelligence, courage, his value to other cultures, and his confidence. Not only does his good characteristics show but, his bad characteristics show like how he is way too confident. I think it is okay that he has bad characteristics because it shows that sometimes he makes mistakes too and it’s okay to make mistakes as long as we fix them. Even though Odysseus makes mistakes, I still find him heroic because I think that his good characteristics show more than his bad
Love: An endless supply of happiness and dopamine I’ll never forget the time I met my girlfriend. I was at my best friend’s birthday party, when a tall beautiful girl with wavy brown hair and the clearest complexion, her face full of happiness and joy. The moment I saw her, was the moment I knew that I had powerful feelings for her. It was amazing actually…feelings began to swell in brain, lust, compassion, affection, adoration, racing through my mind. That would be the day that I would began to fall for Alex.
