    By David Baird
    Authors:
    David Baird
    What is love? Books and songs, films and poems, roses, candy, even days have been dedicated to it, but what do we understand of love? What part does it play in our lives, and what is our part in love? Where do we find love and what forms might it take? How do we give love to others, or ourselves for that matter? Who, what and why do we love?There are as many answers to the questions about love as there are lovers to ask them. Love has ever delighted and perplexed, inspired and confounded. Here within these pages we visit love from every imaginable angle in an attempt to show how this has been, and ever will be, the one enduring obsession of humankind.
