Sorrows of Love

By The School of Life

A thoughtful meditation on the true and sometimes dark nature of love.

We often associate love with being happy. This tendency is misleading, however, as love can also cause the deepest heartbreak imaginable. We tend to treat our sadness individually, as if it were unique and shameful. But, as this book explains, sorrow is intrinsic-and essential-to the very definition of love. By understanding our romantic troubles and griefs, seeing them in their proper context, and appreciating their prevalence, we gain a deeper, more universal insight into the power and complexities of love.

The School of Life is a global organisation helping people lead more fulfilled lives. We believe that the journey to finding fulfilment begins with self-knowledge. It is only when we have a sense of who we really are that we can make reliable decisions, particularly around love and work.
