Love and Sacrifices

What does it mean to love another?

To love another person means to feel compassionate towards them, to "feel"
what they feel. Caring about someone, and what happens to them is also a sign of
love. Sharing a relationship with someone means that you have to be responsible
and have to be aware that there will be times when things go wrong. Loving
someone means taking these "wrong" things and trying to fix them.

What are some signs of love?

Making sacrifices is one sign of devotion to another person. When you care
about someone, you have to give a little. It all comes with life. In order to
receive something, one must sacrifice other things. For example, if having to
make a choice between the love of your life and going to a football game, a
person who is truly in love, and not just in love with "being in love" will
sacrifice the game in order to be with that person.

What is the greatest power of potential human speech? (words, language)

All humans have the power to communicate with other humans, interact, and
share their ideas. The power of speech is what makes it all possible.
Communication is the most important thing in the success of a relationship, and
for someone to say that they love another is to respect them and their ideas and
to want to share with them. The most anyone can ever do for you is listen, and
the only way to do that is to communicate that you want to be listened to and
that you are willing to listen to the one you love. That is the most anyone can
do, and it is a gift of sorts.

What is the greatest thing about human love?

Being in love gives a sense of completeness, makes one feel as if nothing
else is needed in order to survive. Sometimes, being in love can act as a
stepping stone, or a doorway into a world you never knew was out there. It can
give you a new outlook on things, turn everything you've ever known into
something you never thought was possible. Love can also strengthen a "tie" or
"bond" that you may have with someone, in a sense that you have that much more
in common.

What is the greatest expression of love?

Sacrificing anything is the greatest expression of your "love". The
greatest sacrifice one would have to make is death. Dying for a loved one means
that your love wasn't an "It", but a "Thou", and dying only makes it more

Sacrifice Essay

Sacrifice, so many people sacrifice their lives, their loves, their future. However Tayla was different, Tayla didn't believe in sacrifice under any circumstances. She had been raised by her mother in a one-bedroom apartment in the center of New York City. For a 16 yr. old girl growing up in near poverty, sacrifice was not an option. Tayla took upon the duty to look after her mother. She would cook breakfast, clean the apartment and also get herself ready for school. Her mother, Judy, was extremely ill. After her father had died only two years before Tayla started high school, Judy was literally heartbroken. Her heart developed an irregular beat and she was diagnosed with a very serious heart problem and needed a heart transplant in order to survive.

Because of the death of her father, Tayla and Judy were living on a pension and could not afford to have private health insurance.

At school, Tayla was an ordinary teenager. She associated with a bunch of girls who gossiped and giggled. Tayla never told her friends about the trouble she experiencing at home, she was never one for sympathy. Annitta, Tayla's best friend, was the only one who knew about Judy's heart problem. Annitta was always there for Tayla whenever she found it too hard to cope. To escape what was constantly going through her mind, Tayla would walk up to a hill three blocks away from her home. On the very top of the hill, an oak tree, perfect for sitting in, looked over the city. The view from the tree was magnificent, especially at night. Tayla could see the lights of tinsel town flicker in her mind just like all the thoughts racing through her mind at the speed of light. Every night, usually around the same time, Tayla would sit in the oak tree and wrack her brain with thoughts of how to raise the money in order for her mother to have the operation.

As Tayla walked to school on Friday morning, Annitta jogged up beside her. "Hey Tay, how are ya today?" Tayla replied in her usual manner. "I'm coping" "Do you want to do something tonight? Maybe hang out, eat pizza, see a flick? " Very concerned Annitta tried to bring some excitement into Tayla's life. " Maybe Neet, I'll see how mum is feeling. I'll give you a call around six okay?" Promising herself that tonight, just for once, she would go out with Annitta, Tayla turned for home.

As she opened the door to their run down apartment she saw her mother lying on the old tartan lounge chair. Judy's face was pale and covered in cold sweat. As she attempted to sit up to greet Tayla, her face dropped when she realised that she didn't have the energy. "Hey...
