True words of love

When there are expected „true words” of love, it is often misunderstood that they have to be true as the words we use for describing things.

Apart from their presence in sentences, the words which describe things make to arise a feeling of truth.

It is a feeling of rest, because the word exempts us from the necessary efforts for grasping the named things. At the same time, we share the stable position of the named things. Thus, any discourse which describes real or unreal things (and does not put questions about them) is supported by the authority of a self-confident speaker.

Differently, the words of love do not describe things about which the movement of thinking of them ceases by their denomination. If such words describe personal feelings, it will be contrary to their lasting and dynamic nature to hope that we will come to a peaceful state just by naming them.

For the same reason, we cannot draw certainty from the feelings we name. Since we share the unstable nature of feelings, it also results that our „true words” of love cannot be ‘true’ as sincere words.

Therefore, the ‘true words’ of love are rather those which can move others with the movement belonging to their corresponding feelings.
