Mankind love for all the wrong reasons.  Love is a word used too freely.  People say they love their houses, their cars.  They love material things when what they mean is they cherish these items.  But what are they?  Bricks and mortar or pieces of metal.  These are not things to cherish, these are merely objects, and they cannot return the love that is lavished upon them.  Love should mean love from the heart for another person or an animal or even the world of nature.  All these are living things.  Yes a plant cannot love you in return but with care and love it will bloom and grow, showing you just what nature has to offer.  Do not give your love away too lightly for it is the most wondrous thing that you can give.  Peace be with you.
