Which is more important, life or love?

    I know, you want to answer both.  But for the sake of sharing thoughts, we may want to take our stand and justify it. It's something for us to reflect on the importance of both as well, by knowing their importance. big_smile

    Johnny Cuevas said in his book that both are equally important.

    I think it changes with age, the older you get the more you appreciate having someone there who you truly love

      I agree.  Because, when we're still in the highlights of our lives, we tend to prioritize life itself, on being happy with our careers, friends, etc.  But as the time goes, having someone special on your side really matters most. smile

    Well I suppose it depends on what you mean by "important" and what you mean by "life". If by life you mean one's very existence then I would have to say that is most important, since you can not love if you don't exist! Also, before you can love another, you must be able to love yourself which would be impossible if you do not exist.

    On the other hand if by "life" you mean the way you live, then I would say love is more important because without it life is empty and without purpose. Such a life is merely an existence and you are no better than an insect, or a plant.

      Thank you for sharing this thought.  That really put a lot of sense in it.  I guess, we really have to know how we define both before we can know their importance.  big_smile

    I believe both are equally important as to me you have to like life and then you can really
    Love, just my own personal opinion. smile

      I guess that you are a very romantic person and has already found someone very special, based on that. smile

    I would say life, because without life, what does that love do for you?  My child just died.  I loved that baby dearly, but what good does that do the child now?

    it depends from which point of view u r seeing it.

    but for all, life is more important , without it there is no love, and u have to specify the love.

    is it love for your family, love for your nation , or love for your person, they are all COMPLETELY different.

    but there are some other things apart from love in the life. for instance: career, self achievements, sport, etc...
