Love is .
Love is different for everybody. Some say that words may never be enough to express this feeling. And yet, some of the most beautiful thoughts on love have been expressed in poetry.

“Love conquers all things, so we
too shall yield to love.”
“Yet each man kills the thing he loves,
By each let this be heard,
Some do it with a bitter look,
Some with a flattering word.”
- Oscar Wilde
“I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times . In life after life,
in age after age, forever.”
- Rabindranath Tagore
“Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom:
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.”
- William Shakespeare.
