True Love Or Infatuation - 655 words
Many different types of love play an important role in the world today. True love and infatuation coexist to make up love that can occur between a man and a woman. Although true love and infatuation may appear similar on the surface, they actually reside on opposite ends of the spectrum. Many young people today have experienced infatuation, but only a select few have actually experienced true love. The faster one learns to distinguish between the two, the less likely one ends up making a big mistake. Infatuation may last for a while and may pleasure and entertain while it lasts, but only true Although people sometimes find it hard to distinguish between true love and infatuation, a few major ...

True Love In Hamlet - 1,266 words
Something is rotten in the state of Denmark, (1.4.89) Marcellus so wisely stated not knowing the precision behind his words. Various dialogue exchanged throughout the play discretely summarized events that took place. Horatio proved this point when he stated Of carnal, bloody, and unnatural acts, of accidental judgments, casual slaughters, of deaths put on by cunning and [forcd] cause, and in this upshot, purposes mistook falln on th inventors heads. (5.2.381-5) These quotes could easily relate to numerous events that took place during the course of the play, however, none of them are more interesting then the question of true love. The words true love do not encompass Hamlet and Ophelia; bu ...

A Kiss That Embodies Love - 468 words
"A Kiss That Embodies Love" Gustav Klimt's "The Kiss" has been close to my heart for the past seven years. To me this artwork represents an embodiment of true love because the image represents what I consider to be traditional romantic love. The male figure appears protective of the woman, yet he also seems nurturing. The female figure has the soft femininity of a traditional woman, yet she appears to be an equal contributor to the relationship as well as to the painting; neither the man nor the woman predominates. "The Kiss" conveys this to me through the color and shape detail, the embrace of the lovers, and it's romantic theme. The colors used in the image are not the traditional colors o ...

The Use Of Race In Their Eyes Were Watching God - 862 words
The Use of Race in Their Eyes Were Watching God This novel, while poetically conveying a black woman's pursuit of true love, seriously addresses society's ability to be judgmental and oppressive. Gender, race, economic security, and social stratification share equally important roles in the development of the main character, Janie. Hurston vividly describes how each qualification specifically affects the character, although the racial implications are much more subtle. This subtlety allows the reader to mistakenly perceive indifferent or positive feelings towards the novels black community. Hurston initially establishes the ideal unimportance of race by using Janie's innocent childhood memor ...

Love - 948 words
Love is not a god as the fine philosophers of Greece once suggested. Love is something far more powerful and universal, for not all people believe in gods, yet people cannot refuse the existence of love. Instead, love is a condition of the human body that cannot be denied. True love is obstinate; in the way that music pours into the ears of an audience, love pouring into the heart of a man cannot be stopped, denied, or set off course. Love is a natural instinct. You cannot artificially make love where there is none or where it does not belong. Yet, the condition of being in love grows independent of all rationale. It grows places where an observer may not understand its existence. Attempting ...

Women Hollering Creek - 466 words
This wonderfully written story by Sandra Cisneros details the life of Clefilas, the main character. Clefilas deals with several problems during her childhood and continuing on into her marriage. The story never describes any significant relationship with her mother and the negative effects of this can be clearly seen throughout Cisneros piece of work.

Because Clefilas had no real female role model in her life, she did not know any better and allowed herself to remain in an abusive relationship. 2. Clefilas wa ...

The Patience Of Penelope - 422 words
Essay: The Patience of Penelope Do you believe that true love is Eternal? Would you be able to wait for your true love to arrive or would you settle for what is at reach? In the Greek love story, The Patience of Penelope, the writer portrays the meaning of true love. In the short story true love consisted of patience, faith, and even suffering. Not all of us hold the rare quality of having patience. We get desperate easily when we are obligated to wait for something which we need or want. We tend to give in quickly to lessen our craving or settle for less. Patience was something that Penelope, the young; beautiful; and wealthy wife of Odysseus carried within herself. Penelope was aware of h ...

I believe there are limitations, even though most people would disagree and say that life is not worth living if you cant be with the person you love. Maybe Ive never truly been in love, but life is the most splendid gift, and until the day it happens, right now I die for no one. At least you have to take actions that are reasonably thought out. Unlike what Nora did in the play. When her husband was sick and almost dying she borrowed money from a man so they could go on a trip to get him better. There is nothing wro ...

The Picture Of Dorian Gray - 820 words
The myth of Narcissus is a good illustration of the damage that total self love can do to a person. There is a misconception about narcissistic people. This confusion is the belief that narcissistic people are in love with themselves, but according to the DSM lll criteria published in 1989, the narcissus is not in love with himself, but in fact in love with his reflection. This does not mean that a narcissus has no love for others, but it is miss-directed love. They get their love identity from the love of the image they portray to others. In the novel The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, Dorian Gray is the protagonist who is narcissistic. Dorian Gary is in many ways a modern retelli ...
