What's Love Got To Do With It?


Most of us are familiar with the question, 'what is love?' It's one of those subjects that gets tossed around with some regularity. It's a question that has become an easy entry into philosophical pursuit. It has become such a commonly engaged subject that it is even a bit cliche. It has come to the point where people often direct conversation away from the question, because it seems to impossible to truly discuss.
