To like our family home, or to like a performance of Saul, may or may not be to hold it dear, to love it as worthwhile in itself. Sometimes it is, of course, and then we are using 'like' and 'love' as synonyms. Quite commonly, we are not; and then we are distinguishing, on the one hand, between liking in the sense of enjoying, wanting, preferring, or choosing, and 23 on the other hand, cherishing or loving. When we do so, what we love is something that we value for itself even though we may believe some aspects of the object to be worthless.

In the former case, the agent certainly loves only that part of her that consists in particular abilities, and the agent must love her only while she retains the abilities.
