    We all go through this at times, whether with a lover or a child, we love them but dont like them at times, strong words love it.

    Love is just like Love because we do not hate whom we never loved. (Report) Reply

    The fine line between love and hate comes to mind when reading this. It's easy to hate the people that bring us to such extremes. Do we really love them? Or, do we hate them for having such power over us? Of course, Pablo says it best. This one is a classic that will endure forever. (Report) Reply

    An honest portrayal and description of true love. One who does not appreciate must surely be a fool. (Report) Reply
