Another look at Love
    #1018796 - 11/03/02 04:56 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I was just reading a bit and found and interesting statement to ponder. This is not to say i hold this statement with a high amount of certitude but this thread will hopefully take this "discussion" to other realms that were tapped in the previous "Love" posts. The author of this quote will remain nameless for now. see if anybody can guess.

"love is a state in which man sees things, most of all, how they are not."

* to play devil's advocate *
In considering all "belief" to be opinion, love is creating a supreme view, if not one of divinity, for one's "opinion." How can one justify this self-righteousness?

arent we entitled to a little bit of happiness in our lives?
yes love blinds our view to certain issues, but it enhances it to others...
example - you go out and drop a pill and acheive temporary enlightenment

Hmmm....

I think that line is rather pessimistic... but sometimes accurate.

"love is a state in which man sees things, most of all, how they are not."



I don't think I agree with this, could someone explain how this is true?

Self-righteousness is not always the case --but it usually is. Opinion can be manipulated. Love probably can't.

Do you think that this sentence:

"Love is a state in which man sees things, most of all, how they really are"

could be considered any less accurate? If so, why?
