Love in Chinese Letter

Ai (Chinese) means love (English)
"Ai (愛)" the traditional Chinese character for love (愛) consists of a heart (心, middle) inside of "accept" "feel" or "perceive" (受) which shows a graceful emotion. It can also be interpreted as a hand offering one's heart to another hand.

The concept of "Ai (愛)" was developed by the Chinese philosopher Mozi in the 4th century BC in reaction to Confucianism's benevolent love.
