    love will come by giving.give your passions/appetites/greed.

    give self ,be selfless/ give love and u will find comes only by giving .

    sufi say by dying. dying to self/ego  and u will know what love is.feed ants/dogs/birds/ destitute/

    suffer for others and u will know what love is.u dont need a schoolto teach u to love.your soul is always  seeking love. but u always walk in opposite direction to find it.
