I’ve been thinking about the meaning of love a lot lately. The movie Le Miserables came out recently and it was a moving and powerful account of the abilities of humankind to create light in extreme darkness. Marius falls in love with Cosette and in the book, writes her an extensive love letter. Toward the end of it, he writes:
“I encountered in the street a penniless young man who was in love. His hat was old and his jacket worn, with holes at the elbows; water soaked through his shoes, but starlight flooded through his soul.”
What are your thoughts on love? What is true, unconditional love?
