The great conundrum of love is that the pain of loss is amplified by the quality and magnitude of that love.
Love is a willingness to lose anything for someone who means everything while expecting nothing.
That is the love that scores the greatest dramas and the mightiest epics. We sing songs of that love and write poems about that love. Every time that someone dies for that kind of love, a little bit of evil dies too. That is how Christ loves us. That is how we should love each other.
