The greatest love of all and me...:)

Pertama mengenal lagu ini sekitar tahun 1989 saat saya masih SMA, waktu itu Hilman-lupus membahas lagu ini di majalah Gadis, lagu ini yang membuat saya terlecut kembali bersemangat ketika saya gagal dan jatuh

I believe the children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be

Everybody's searching for a hero
People need someone to look up to
I never found anyone who fulfilled my needs
A lonely place to be
So I learned to depend on me

I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone's shadows
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I'll live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can't take away my dignity


Because the greatest love of all
Is happening to me
I found the greatest love of all
Inside of me
The greatest love of all
Is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself
It is the greatest love of all

I believe the children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be

And if, by chance, that special place
That you've been dreaming of
Leads you to a lonely place
Find your strength in love

bagian yang paling saya suka karena bisa membuat saya terus bangkit lagi adalah
.....So I learned to depend on me
I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone's shadows
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I'll live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can't take away my dignity

perasaan si penulis lagu bisa sampai karena ternyata Ada kisah sedih di balik lirik inspiratif "The Greatest Love of All". Lagu yang diambil dari album pertama Whitney ini diciptakan oleh Michael Masser dan Linda Creed.Sebelumnya dibawakan George Benson pada tahun 1977. Ketika menciptakan lagu ini, Linda telah didiagnosa mengidap kanker payudara. Perasaannya ketika harus menghadapi tantangan terberat dalam hidup, tetap tegar tanpa tahu akan bertahan atau tidak, dituangkan dalam lagu ini.
Linda meninggal pada April 1986. Saat itu lagu ini sedang sangat populer di Amerika Serikat. Meski tidak menang, tahun yang sama Whitney dinominasikan dalam Grammy Awards untuk kategori Record of the Year lewat lagu ini.
