喜歡與愛有什麼區別?The difference between love and like


有人問了佛 Someone asked the Buddha 
喜歡”與“愛”有什麼區別呢? How to distinguish "like" from "love"

佛指了指一個孩子,只見孩子站在花前,久久不肯離開,最後孩子被花的美丽迷醉,不由的伸出手把花摘下來。
The Buddha pointed at a child. The child was standing in front of a flower. The child was memorised by the flower and stood there for a long time, unconsciously the the child held out his hand to pick the flower. 

佛說:這就是喜歡。
Buddha: This is like.

接着,佛指了指另一個孩子,只見孩子滿頭大汗的在給花澆水,担心花被烈日晒着……自己站在花前。 
Next the child pointed at another child. This child's forehead was covered with sweat. The child was watered the flower while standing in front of the flower was blocking the strong sun from shining on the flower. 

佛說:這就是爱。 Buddha: This is love.  
喜歡是為了得到 Like is to take (receive something)

而愛却是為了付出,這就是最本質的區别。Yet love is to give. 
That is the fundamental difference. 

花若盛開,蝴蝶自來!
When the flowers bloom, the butterflies will gather. 

你若精彩,天自安排!

If you have depth, the heavens will give way.
