Soft links can be found in men's trousers or underwear.

A hard link is restricted to the same volume. A hard link and the so- 
called "original file" are the same, there is no difference. A hard  
link or the so-called "original file" need to be deleted (un-linked)  
as often as the "link count" in ls indicates to remove it from disk.

A symbolic link, i.e. not a hard link, can point to anywhere. You can  
remove the symbolic link and the target still exists, you can remove  
the target and the symbolic link still exists, although it's now  
useless. The target file and the symbolic link file are distinct and  
of different types.
