October says: "I think love is the ultimate art project. To me, there's nothing more beautiful, more powerful, or more meaningful than truly and purely loving another human. No expectations. No strings attached. Just the freedom to be who you are and to be loved in spite of that." Is this kind of love truly possible — to have love with no expectations?

Yes, if the definition includes tolerance, patience, gratitude, and good communication.

Loving someone/being loved by someone can really make you appreciate them. You tend to see them in ways no one else understands or sees.

I thought that was a beautiful statement. Love is created, nurtured and kept in a special place...just like art.

Art is a creation or expression of one's feelings. Love is an art project that can paint a beautiful picture or be a failure. It must keep evolving over time to be the masterpiece it can become.

It is what most people strive to achieve but not all make it fully.

If it is possible, I think it must be very difficult to achieve in real life.

I felt a kinship with this quote. I think it is easy to love children this way, much more difficult to love adults with their faults.

I think truly and purely loving another human is possible only in a mother for her child relationship, and even in this, there are often expectations and strings attached. The man/woman love relationship is simply too complex to sustain over a long period of time with no strings or expectations. We are after all, only human.

Yes, I think this kind of love is possible...but it is a constant work of art in progress. I'm not sure if it's ever possible for the masterpiece to be finished/complete.

This quote resonated with me as well. Truly and purely loving another person (friend, spouse, child) is great, but I agree with those who mentioned that it is not always easy and requires things like patience and compromise. I had a great friend who always introduced his wife at parties as "my first wife." She was his only wife, and they spent more than 50 years together before he passed away. What he enjoyed telling people after introducing her that way was how their relationship evolved over the years. Before he passed, he said he felt like he was on marriage number five with the same woman, and they were all beautiful in their own ways.

No, I don’t think this kind of pure and true love is possible. I believe that this kind of love come only from GOD.
