A Series of Untranslatable Words About Love

Tiam (Farsi): the twinkle in your eye when you first meet someone.
Forelsket (Norwegian): the indescribable euphoria as you begin to fall in love.
Saudade (Portuguese): the vague constant desire for something that does not and probably cannot exist. A nostalgic longing for someone loved and then lost.

This is easily one of the best videos I’ve seen in a long time. Given the universal theme, I would think it would resonate with most people.

I think the Portuguese word Saudade is my favorite. Nostalgia – in all of its forms – is a theme I can especially relate to.
