A Six-Word Note on Love
A class I teach explores love from theological, philosophical, and scientific perspectives. It is about to conclude. My students have offered some intriguing perspectives on what they think about love.
I’m a fan of what are sometimes called “six-word memoirs.” These little phrases or sentences have six words each.
To conclude my class on love, I asked students to construct their own six-word love notes. The notes could highlight an overall theme in the course. They may describe something important they have learned while taking the course. Or they may simply be a statement they want to make about love.
Below are the six-word notes on love my students crafted. Some are profound. Others are cute. Others defy easy classification.
