Liking and Loving: Difference

A boy asked his teacher:

“Sir What’s the difference between “like” and “love”?
Answer was a master piece:

“When you like a flower,
you just pluck it.

But when you love a flower,
you water it daily!
That’s Love


What is true love? How to know!

True Love

If you love a flower, don’t pick it up. Because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love. So if you love a flower, let it be. Love is not about possession. Love is about appreciation. –Osho

True love means that we care for another person’s happiness more than our own, no matter what we get in return. True Love is caring and attraction. If you love someone or something, you will get attracted and start caring for it. Soon, it will create a bond or attachment between you. If the thing(like the flower) can live happily without you or can live a better life, we should not try to possess it.

Just like the climax in the recent bollywood movie: Ashiqui-2, The film is about a man who ends his life so that his lover can live on a better life. He gives her every sort of fame and name in the world and still does not want to possess her because of his alcoholism- which carries the ability to destroy relationships.

It is not Love when other people like us for doing what they want. Real love is when we fail to do what other people want but they still don’t feel disappointed at us. That is love, and that love alone has the power to bind people together and create the best relationships.
