C.S. Lewis's famous inspirational work on the nature of love. C.S. Lewis's famous work on the nature of love divides love into four categories: Affection, Friendship, Eros and Charity. The first three are loves which come naturally to the human race. Charity, however, the Gift-love of God, is divine in its source and expression, and without the sweetening grace of this supernatural love, the natural loves become distorted and even dangerous.

"True friendship is not a reward for our discrimination and good taste in finding one another out. It is the instrument by which God reveals to each the beauties of all the others."

"Do not let your happiness depend on something you may lose. If love is to be a blessing, and not a misery, it must be for the only beloved who will never pass away."

"Nothing is falser than the idea that mockery is necessarily hostile. Until they have a baby to laugh at, lovers are always laughing at each other."

This is a book that will make you aware of things you subconsciously thought only you experienced. It will keep you engaged if you're curious about the subject, and definitely made more clear to me the purpose of love on earth. I would recommend this after reading "Mere Christianity" which was his book that I enjoyed most.

love love love love this. c.s. lewis gives great explanations of what he considers to be the four loves that humans experience. it sounds like it's written by a philosopher, so i wouldn't call it an easy read by any means. sometimes he does get carried away with descriptions and explanations that seem to veer away from what he meant to say, but overall this is a great book!
