    “I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”
    ― Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets

      I'm pretty sure he wrote my favorite love poem.  I can't remember the name at the moment, lol.

        Neruda could definitely describe what love is.

    Aristotle would have called this kind of love the “friendship of virtue.”

      I like that. Aristotle said many cool things.

    Kenna, have you ever read the Nicomachean Ethics? I haven’t but would like to one of these days. I learned all about the Nicomachean Ethics in my General Ethics course in undergraduate school. Although the course was challenging, I wish that I could go back in time and take it all over again.

      Gregory,
      No. I haven't. I have study Aristotle's writings in school, like you. I studied for a grade back then. If I studied Aristotle today, it would be for a different purpose.
