The Nightingale and The Rose is a heartbreaking story about the nature of love and sacrifice At the beginning of the story, we are given the impression that the love between the student and the girl is a true love Later, we are struck with the truth Their love turns out to be a shallow one based on materialistic happiness At the end the student gives up on his love because it was not true in the first place What a silly thing Love is It is not as useful as Logic, for it does not prove anything, and it is always telling one of things that are not going to happen, and making one believe things that are not true In fact, it is quite unpractical, and, as in this age to be practical is everything, I shall go back to Philosophy and study Metaphysics And we are left to ponder the nightingale s sacrifice was it worth it Or was it all in vain The nightinga
