  1. What is love?
  2. In the year 2012, that phrase - what is love -, was the most researched phrase on Google. Five writers from diverse backgrounds tried to define what love is. The five people were a physicist, a psychotherapist, a philosopher, a romantic novelist, and a nun. The answers they gave were eloquent, convincing, and yes, diverse.
  3. The nun said that love is a paradox. “Love is free yet binds us.”
  4. The romantic novelist said that love is everything.
  5. The philosopher said that love is a passionate commitment.
  6. The psychotherapist identified six different types of love and said that it is unlikely to experience all six types with only one person.
  7. And the physicist? He said that “love is chemistry.”
  8. So what is love?
  9. In this book, I have tried to show love that is as diverse as the five authors above have defined it. I also try to show love that meets the precise definition that Paul gives in his first letter to the Corinthians, below: “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self- seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” ~ The First Letter of Paul To The Corinthians 13:4-8
  11. What is love? In 1845, the poet Robert Browning, in his first letter to the poet Elizabeth Barrett, wrote: “I love your verses with all my heart… and I love you too.” Robert, at that time, had never met, never even seen Elizabeth. It was enough for him to read her poetry to fall in love with her…truly…deeply…passionately. Look at a sample extracted from his first letter to her: Robert Browning to Elizabeth Barrett New Cross, Hatcham, Surrey January 10, 2023 I love your verses with all my heart, dear Miss Barrett,---and this is no off-hand complimentary letter that I shall write,-- whatever else, no prompt matter-of-course recognition of your genius, and there a graceful and natural end of the thing. Since the day last week when I first read your poems, I quite laugh to remember how I have been turning and turning again in my mind what I should be able to tell you of their effect upon me...I do, as I say, love these books with all my heart---and I love you too...
  12. Yours ever faithfully,
  13. Robert Browning
