We asked our students to share their thoughts on love and here is what they had to say:
Some of students thoughts:
Ahmad Yasser Almasri
Love is not about a mutual feeling between a lover and a beloved. It rather is a constituent act in everything we do.
To love your country is to be faithful.
To Love, your work means to be creative.
To love others is to extend a hand in times of need.
To love a woman is to be loyal to her.
Love is indispensable. It permeates human existence.
We become more concerned about the possibility of hurting our loved ones when our love towards them grows.
Love is not necessarily an emotion between a man and a woman. Love is the continuous prayers of a mother for her child. Love is a brother’s embrace when everyone else deserts you. Love is the shoulder of a friend when life batters you.
Love is too intense and nobler than to be confined to one person only.
Love is not a person.
Love is our actions. Love is doing all that we can, even if that meant giving someone a larger piece of the cake.
Love is understanding that we have the ability to hurt each other, but making every possible effort not to go down that way.
Love could be lethal.
You alone are the refuge to this heart regardless of the distances between us, pushed further by our own wishes at times. Damned is a life without you.
You are on my mind, dominating my heart.
I draw comfort from looking at your pictures. Can you imagine how would I feel were you to hold my hand?
You are the morning breeze, a cup of coffee, a Fairuz’s song reverberating in the allies of Damascus.
I said I love you. I said it in so many ways: tired, joking, and serious. You did not hear it despite my numerous attempts.
Look at what you have done to my heart. You set it ablaze, waging intractable wars that no truce can ever bring to an end.
My letters froze as they stumbled to describe your hazelnut eyes.
I loved you as much as I love Shawarma.
If they ask me one day how long will you stay with him ??? My answer is that I don’t know because I don’t know which is longer (always or forever)
Learn to love before you commemorate it in a festival.
