My apologies to René Descartes, but when I look back on my life, more than the places I’ve travelled to and lived I remember most of all the people I love. No, that is not a grammatical error? I use the presence tense for love because I believe love never ends, it just sometimes changes form. It is love that provides me with the greatest adventures of my life on a daily basis. Although not always in an active form, but always in the form of loving “memories, dreams, and reflections.” Thank you C.G. Jung.
“Love,” this English word: like other English words, it has tense. “Loved” or “will love” or “have loved.” All these specific tenses mean Love is time-limited thing. Not infinite. It only exist in particular period of time. In Chinese, Love is (ai). It has no tense, no past, no future. Love in Chinese means a being, a situation, a circumstance. Love is existence, holding past and future.
