However, Silvius doubts the old shepherd's authority in such matters, for although Corin admits having been drawn into acts of madness for the sake of love during his youth, he cannot recall any of them. Silvius clearly manifests that if Corin has forgotten even the most insignificant detail of the actions love made him run into, then he has never been truly in love. Even more, Silvius also explains that a true lover never ceases to adore his lady in speech, even if this moves his listener to discomfort, and further explains that sincere love may drive a lover to interrupt a conversation out of passion. To prove this last point, Silvius suddenly interrupts his speech passionately crying the name of Phebe, his beloved, several times. Silvius reflects the behavior of the courtly lover, who is capable of the most foolish actions for the sake of his beloved, and who suffers the pangs of unrequited love and the abrupt separation from his lady.

In her book Lived Experiences, De Beauvoir argues that men and woman experience love differently. A woman will only give herself up to a man who truly loves and cherishes her and through the love she inspires, she will feel endowed and will be able to see her value. The woman deceives herself into being blinded to her freedom. She mistakenly believes that she would find her freedom within the relationship and not on her own. According to De Beauvoir (2011), the woman enslaves herself to her love in order to free herself (p. 691).
Despite the negative connotations of his mistress, Shakespeare speaks a true woman and true love. The sonnet is a "how-to" guide to love. This poem speaks of a love that is truer than denoting a woman's physical perfection or her "angelic voice." As those traits are all ones that will fade with time, Shakespeare exclaims his true love by revealing her personality traits that caused his love. Shakespeare suggests that the eyes of the woman he loves are not twinkling like the sun: "My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun" (1).
The plot and characters of Great Expectations all illustrate that love and infatuation are not the same thing, but are inherently different. Although characters and people in real life “fall in love”, they really only scratch the surface of what love truly is. Love at first sight remains a popular trope in fiction and it ultimately portrays love as physical attraction rather than time and care; love is accepting people’s flaws and trying to help them. In the end, people must let go of the simplicity of infatuation and learn to love for more than
From then one, the love between them is soul-deep. For how could Cyrano, a just man, judge others based solely on appearance when his own is so abhorrent to him?

In his most courageous gesture, he relinquishes Roxane to Cyrano, the person he knows understands her better than he himself ever
The Character of Ophelia in Hamlet Ophelia is a beautiful and simple-minded woman, easily molded by the more powerful opinions and desires of others. The thoughts of her father and her brother influenced her the most. The love letters from Hamlet also swayed her opinions and confused her mind.

Both Beatrice and Benedick go from “hating” each other to loving each other. Beatrice says she likes to remain independent and says she wants to distance herself from love. However, that is not actually the truth because she may try to portray that personality around others, but in this scene when it just her talking to herself she admits that she loves him. Benedick has been hurt by love before, possibly cheated on. This makes him reluctant to show any love to anyone, but he loves Beatrice.
