What we call “being in love”..halah!

with one comment

What we call ‘being in love’ is a glorious state, and, in several ways, good for us. It helps to make us generous and courageous, it opens our eyes not only to the beauty of the beloved but to all beauty, and it subordinates (especially at first) our merely animal sexuality; in that sense, love is the great conqueror of lust.

I was or am actually in a middle of a book project when i found this passage. Interesting and debatable ;p the first point is when he stated: ‘being in love’ helps to make us generous and courageous. really? is it really generous, when we are willing to give everything to whom we love? i mean. when we are generous to one person only, can we be called generous? you know, i really had a bad experience with one of my male friend, whom unfortunately interest me 😉 he was very-very nice to me and others, actually but then, when he fell in love with this girl he suddenly be very generous to this girl, and by all means, only to this girl. can we call that generous?for heaven sake, that is so hypocrite. dont you think so?

the second point, his statement “love is the great conqueror of lust”..ay-yay-yay…is it really true?i hve wooble mind in here, hello? didnt love that make all the lust “freed”…
