Strong as death

A people who live for themselves will not die for each other; they become slaves of those who care so much for something greater than themselves that they will die for it, if not each other; and when that something greater is a person, such a death is then the definition of a famous, much abused word:  Love is the death of one’s self for the person he loves. "Love is strong as death," the Bride says in the Song of Songs.
