Love is popularly known as a deep feeling of affection.
Love encompasses a range of strong and positive emotional and mental states, from the most sublime virtue or good habit, the deepest interpersonal affection and to the simplest pleasure.
An example of this range of meanings is that the love of a mother differs from the love of a spouse, which differs from the love of food. Most commonly, love refers to a feeling of strong attraction and emotional attachment.
Love is also considered to be a virtue representing human kindness, compassion, and affection, as “the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another”. It may also describe compassionate and affectionate actions towards other humans, one’s self or animals.
Forms Of Love
Ancient Greek philosophers identified five forms of love: essentially, familial love (in Greek, Storge), friendly love or platonic love (Philia), romantic love (Eros), guest love (Xenia) and divine love (Agape). Modern authors have distinguished further varieties of love: unrequited love, empty love, companionate love, consummate love, infatuated love, self-love, and courtly love.

Ok, let me go to the point and reason for all this definition of love.
In humans why is there no love? Why do people envy one another? Why are there cases of murder, bombs, and assualts every where.
You know “love is caring and doesn’t harm” so why are they still poor children in the world? why is there still wickedness?
Ok I will say, 80% of humans on Earth just love their children, wife, husband, friends and all those related by blood, but why not stangers, like South Africa has killed over 200 Nigerians between 2017-2019 is that love.
In this world we need to show one another love, that’s the only way to live peacefully and happily. Care for the poor, donate to them, love other tribes and races don’t discriminate.
World love and peace starts from you, so let’s showcase love everywhere we go. Thanks.
