“Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places”

While everyone professes the desire to be in love or love, it seems few these days succeed.

Whether it’s romantic love or love of your fellow-man, perhaps the failure stems from the wrong definition of love. The wrong definition and expectation leads to not discovering it and/or not maintaining it.

Never one to pick on Elvis, but his song “I Want You, I Need You, I Love You”, is the wrong definition. It sounds romantic and yet it is the “I” that is the wrong starting point. It is the “I” that wants and needs but doesn’t ask what it can give, only what it can get. Like a small child who is dying to get a certain toy only to quickly grow tired of it and want another is the “I”.

True and real love is not for taking, it’s for giving.

“We may give without loving, but we cannot love without giving.” – Bernard Meltzer

“We waste time looking for the perfect lover, instead of creating the perfect love.” – Tom Robbins

“Love is the magician that pulls man out of his own hat.” – Ben Hecht
