The four Greek words for our word "love" are storge (affection), philia (friendship), eros (sexual or romantic love) and agape (selfless love, charity). These four categories form the basis of C S Lewis' famous work on the nature of love, which seeks to show how the first three, which come naturally to humans, are fulfilled in the fourth - Agape, the Gift-love of God. Without the sweetening grace of this supernatural love, divine in its source and expression, the natural loves become distorted and even dangerous.
