You can turn life into love in two steps: life, live, love. A game of transition, by changing one letter at a time. Seen in this phonically connected sequence, the words seem almost to have the same root, the same derivation. The problem is that there is a mix of nouns and verbs, some are static and others active parts of speech. Life is an unbounded static noun, live a verb, but love straddles the categories: “I love” - a verb, expressing action; ‘Hello, my love’ - a noun, static, bounded by rules and conditions to a time and place.
