Compassion and love are synonymous. One cannot be pure and perfect without the other, hence one is tested on the synthesis of both together, again and again, until the two are merged and one no longer thinks of either concept. The person has become it.

Find it out yourself...Love is a gift from out of the blue. Until you experience "blue" then love won't find its way to you.

Love is a beautiful thing, however one should not be a fool when it comes to it. Love is a blessing and a gift, when it's reciprocate.
Love may have something to with it, but it should not be the deciding factor. Love yourself first before loving someone else. This will ensure not ambiguous decisions are not made. At least I hope.
