For centuries, authors, artists and musicians have tried to capture and convey what it means to love.

Aristotle wrote, "Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies." Pablo Picasso said, "Love is the greatest refreshment in life." And Bette Midler dedicated her song "The Rose" to defining love.
