Love

It's a gift.
It's a test.
It's a challenge.
It's a reward.
It's a punishment.
It's a tease.
It's a want.
It's a right.
It's a trait.
It's a habit.
It's a privilege.
It's a maze.
It's a devil.
It's a desire.
It's a need.
It's a ghost.
It's a choke.
It's a goal.
It's a deception.
It's a security.
It's a reciprocity.
It's a job.
It's a choice.
It's a pull.
It's a battle.
It's a procedure.
It's a conquest.
It's a lesson.
It's a teamwork.
It's a sweat.


It's Love.

"Any love that is dependent on something--when the thing ceases, the love also ceases. But a love that is not dependent on anything never ceases. What is [an example of] a love that is dependent on something? The love of Amnon for Tamar. And one that is not dependent on anything? The love of David and Yonathan."
(Ethics of the Fathers)

it would be as funny as being greeted by a woulf first thing in the morning.

Chazonim zeinen naaronim said...

Deep. Seriously. (Not the wolf part, the Chanoch l'naar...)

I'd say love is pretty vast, assuming many forms that are positive and negative.

I think a joke about misspelling, with a misspelling, is very, very, very funny. And ironic too, if I'm using the word correctly.

(Just teasing.)

Ironic. Eye-are-oh-enn-eye-see. Ironic.
"The four legs of my desk are ironic. The top is woodish."

melech zaken u'ksil said...

Oh, Shogun, you used the word splendificately.

Pierre,
Yuh huh! Mais je le mal ai prononcé. J'ai signifié pour dire « ch'sil. »...
Même chose!

Pierre said...

Je parle du mot: "spledificately". Mais je ne suis pas l'anglais mayven ici.

Ahhhh: And here I was, all self-conscious, running for my Kohelet 4:13 to see how I could have possibly misquoted it... Nunu...

Love is a window and a mirror.

the sabra said...

and to the boy who cried woulf-
You got the number wrong. just kidding, but how funny would that be? (Hint: Very, very, very)

the sabra said...

The Baal Shem Tov's Ahavat Yisrael (love of fellow Jew) was beyond
imagination.

The Maggid said:

"If only we could kiss a Sefer-Torah with the same love that my Master kissed the children when he took them to Cheder as a teacher's assistant!"
