|Abstract:||Webster's New World dictionary defines love as a strong affection for or attachment or devotion to a person or persons. It implies intense fondness or deep devotion and may apply to various relationships or objects. What distinguishes love from “affection” or “attainment” is that the feelings implied by the latter are not as powerful or deep as those implied by love. Also, love can be treated in a broad sense to mean the feeling of benevolence and closeness (or brotherhood) that people may have for each other.|
