Maybe we shouldn't be looking for love. Maybe we should be looking for a person. Because maybe you can find love in a person, but not have that person.

Losing in love is as crucial of a step to developing goodness and humility in character as is failure to win is in any other endeavor.

Feelings of love open us to experience all human emotions with a heightened sense of self-awareness.
