What is love?

The question that has fascinated me till today and till the day I lay to rest. As there is no one answer to it and almost never the same answer given if you ask anyone the question "what is love?". I don't understand why people respond differently when asked this simple question, but what I do know is that you will find more relevant answers form people without even asking them the questions in the first place; all you have to do is sit a while, then watch and listen... and maybe you will come across conversations that reveals what love truly means:

Love is when you walk all the way to the other side of the classroom to sharpen your pencil in order to walk by him/her, then you realize that your pencil... is a BALLPEN.

" Tom had learned anything... it was that you can't ascribe great cosmic significance to a simple earthly event. Coincidence, that's all anything ever is, nothing more than coincidence... Tom had finally learned, there are no miracles. There's no such thing as fate, nothing is meant to be. He knew, he was sure of it now... or is he?" - 500 Days of Summer

In life, you will realize that the people you meet have a purpose. Some were put there to test you, some would use you, some would teach you. And some would bring out the better if not the best in you. Some may even cause you pain and heartache but one must learn to move on. So let go of the people who can't treat you right and hold on to those who love you back and see your worth...
