Love is Greater

Love is not linear.  Love is a spectrum.

There are several loves.  None is superior or inferior to another.   There is no hierarchy with “friendship”, inferior, at the bottom, and “romance”, superior, at the top.

Friendship is a love as powerful and redeeming as romance.

I get no credit for mentioning this.  Ancient Greek thinkers are most famous for  defining it.  They saw four loves; their language had four words for “love”.   I won’t take your time.  You can look them up.  Or, you can read “The Four Loves”, by the great C.S. Lewis.

Friendship is not a consolation prize.
