I have quite often wondered about the nature of love. The popular image of love never ceases to amaze me. Its laden with false ideas and misconceptions. Things like fidelity, sincerity, longevity and a kind of benign symbiosis are considered to be essential characteristics of love. When in reality they may not have anything to do with it. The problem lies in seeing love only as a romantic concept when in reality it may be one of the most destructive concepts. It has the tendency to corrupt the clear perception of a person. No wonder a person in love quite often over estimates his own abilities.
