About the Book

Love and Life: How People Describe Them Everybody Wants them, But What Are They?) Reminds me of a song by the band. Foreigner: “I Want to Know What Love Is!” which is sung by numerous artists, so compelling is the message, that it captures our hearts and imaginations. From a life of heartache and pain, the protagonist doggedly continues on his search for love, hence the title of the song: “I Want to Know What Love Is!” Clearly the protagonist has never had any rewarding experience of love, that is our first inference. Second, we hope that he has NOT put the rest of his life “on hold”, while he waits for love to drop into his lap. Third, we get the impression that he is labouring under some sort of a handicap, or that he is trying too hard! Have you ever heard this said about love? “Love is like a butterfly, the more you chase it the more it eludes you. But if you quietly turn your attention to other things, it comes and alights softly on your shoulder!” The first part of the statement is definitely true. The second part, “whether it will come and sit softly on your shoulder at some point” - will depend on the handicaps/circumstances of your life. One thing is for sure: turning your attention to other things, if they are worthwhile, will make you grow and mature as a person. Never a truer statement than this: “Happiness is making a bouquet out of those flowers within reach”. However you define “flowers”, perhaps something creative that brings happiness to you as well as others - could that also be seen as a form of happiness??!!!

About the Author

Chris Nelson wrote this book: Love and Life: How People Describe Them! (Everybody Wants Them, but What are They?). We are dealing here, with many people and many descriptions. Therefore, it takes one ability above all to do justice to these quotations with our interpretive comments. What is that quality, you ask? The ability to put yourself/imagine yourself in someone else’s shoes. This involves not only empathizing with the full range of their woes (a la golden rule), but also sharing with them their successes in the domain of their victories. Above all, it means being able to understand how people think, speak, behave, and why! If we do a good job with our interpretive comments based on these abilities, then we will have come a step closer to “knowing what love is”, in all its many splendored mainstays and offshoots!
