The greatest thing you’ll ever learn
Is to love and be loved in return.
~ Natalie Cole, Unforgettable with Love
Philosophers and writers agree that romance and love are the most important human emotions we experience. Books, songs, and poetry are filled with the subject, trying to explain in words these emotions. As wonderful as words can be, love eludes description. Love is eternal and universal. Studies have proven that when man is isolated from other human beings, he goes mad.
Why the need for love and romance? It’s part of us. We desire human contact, we feast upon the beauty of that special someone, and it makes us feel fulfilled and vibrant. It boosts our self-esteem to love and be loved. Special hormones gush through our bodies when we are in love. Love brings out the best in people, allowing them to conquer the greatest of feats. Like the Grinch’s heart, it can grow with love. Scientifically, they have proven that the heart has its own emotions that are not associated with the brain.
Soul meets soul on lover’s lips.
~Percy B Shelly
Other emotions can come and go, but our desire for love, romance, and happiness can never be taken away. Love can blossom in the most unusual places, and romance can spice it up. During the most difficult of times, love can bring people together. Love blossoms and grows like the petals of a rose and truly ascends all other emotions.
