Aveugle est l'engouement, tandis que l'amour voit tout et tout accepter aspect étonnant de la vie. l'amour est fort et permanent engouement vis-à-vis qui est fragile et transitoire. à mon avis, l'amour est comme de la soie, qui est délicate, douce, illuminant et doux - et pourtant si forte qu'aucune force sur terre ne peut déchirer facilement. l'amour est d'accepter l'autre pour de bonnes qualités ainsi que des défauts, et pour les forces autant que les faiblesses. l'amour est de travailler ensemble à travers les défis de la vie, et surmonter les obstacles avec synergie. Je voudrais résumer l'amour dans trois T: la trust, la transparence et le travail d'équipe.
