dear english guru,
уделите, пжл, особое внимание 2-ому абзацу: не кажется ли Вам, что я указываю только одно свойство любви, всеобъемлемость, хотя и расписываю его подробно в 3 проявлениях?
What should people do to be happy? It is not a straightforward question to answer. For centuries love has been believed a key means to reach this aim, but nowadays many think that there are other aspects of life that overweigh the role that love plays in human lives.
In my mind, love is a panacea that helps people to resist tough challenges of life. Comparing with other feelings, love is universal. Therefore, it influences different aspects of life. Love as a strong feeling of affection for someone, combined with sexual attraction, brightens lives. Parental love makes children happy and gives them the impulse to create their own happy families. Then, love as the main rule of life helps one to see the beauty around them, including other people, nature, and art. Love inspires people to share their happiness with others.
However, many say that living in the era of advanced sophisticated machines, people are gradually becoming like their soulless helpers. Pragmatic and selfish, they are concerned with money and possessions rather than things of mind such as art, religion or moral beliefs.
I cannot but argue saying that every generation have always tended to describe themselves as a unique one. Nevertheless, life has proved that such feelings and relationships as love and hatred, friendship and betrayal are eternal. They are initial human qualifications.
To conclude, I want to stress that love is a golden thread of existence. To love means not to do harm, to support, respect, and recognize the right of all living being to live in harmony with the world around them. (266)
