The author states that everyone has already being in love or at least thought about being in love. According to the author's assumption, there is no exception because the love affects everyone and we all know what love is; however, the author wants we take our own conclusions and understand that love is powerful enough to affect people with strong and weak characters.
The author's opinion is that, "Love can find entrance, not only into an open heart, but also into a heart well-fortified, if watch be not well kept." This means that does not matter how much we resist the love will always find a way to come in. Moreover, one of the author's statements is that "By how much the more, men ought to beware of this passion, which loseth not only other things, but itself!" Basically, he says that the human being needs to have a better knowledge of the power of love.
Love simply cannot be translated into words. Something so abstract, that mixes with so many other emotions. Only those who have already being in love or felt such awesome feeling somehow at least once in a lifetime are able to translate it into words; however, this translation varies from person to person. If ten people are interviewed, each one will give a different definition of this feeling inside them. Regardless of the kind of love discussed the author is right when he says that this feeling affects anybody and that we need to know what love really is about and its power.
The love from a mother to her baby starts from the moment she finds out about her pregnancy and it lasts until the very end of her life. A mother's love is pure, unconditional, steady, tender, and is always ready to forgive. She loves her newborn baby from the first heartbeats, through nights of feverish times, and when her child becomes a teenager and falls in love for the very first time. She is always there to give precious conceals. Her love is unconditional because she does anything and everything without expecting material things in return, except a loving embrace. As time passes by, that little newborn baby and now a teenager become grown but it does not mean anything. Her love is steady. In the "Beloved" (1987) Toni Morrison kindly states: "Grown don't mean nothing to a mother. A child is a child. They get bigger, older, but grow. In my heart it doesn't mean a thing."
A mother's tenderness turns her into one of the most powerful human beings. She fights like a lioness for her child and nobody should dare to hurt them. A mother's instinct is mixed with the purest love. There is a German proverb that says "Who takes the child by the hand takes the mother by the heart." This proverb matches perfectly with Francis Bacon's idea that says "is impossible to love and to be wise" or as I say in the very beginning of this essay it is impossible to love and be rational at the same time. There are no second chances because it does not exist when we talk about mother's love. Her forgiveness is infinity and incomparable. How can we possibly translate such wonderful feeling into words? It is definitely impossible and I dare to challenge someone who can try to make it; however, each one might have a different perspective of how intense the maternal love is.
The intensity of love between a man and woman is like a chemical reaction that is able to transform the soul of a man and a woman. It is an incredible mystery that not even the science is able to explain. We see the apple falling on the ground but we do not think why it does not go up instead. Why does
