The Clod and the Pebble (by William Blake):

Definition 1:

"Love seeketh not Itself to please,
"Nor for itself hath any care,
"But for another gives its ease,
"And builds a Heaven in Hell's despair."

So sang little Clod of Clay
Trodden with the cattle's feet
But a Pebble of the brook
Warbled out these metres meet:

Definition 2:

"Love seeketh only Self to please,
"To bind another to Its delight,
"Joys in another's loss of ease,
"And builds a Hell in Heaven's despite."
Is love selfish or selfless? Unconditional or conditional?
Do we love loving other people or just love feeling love?
What is love?
