People in love are fascinating; they exhibit a deep and intense passion for each other that leads them to do things they ordinarily would not.

Nothing great is ever accomplished without passion; whether it’s successful business ventures, thriving marriages, or great literature.

Part of the reason we don’t like to rest is that we’re afraid things might fall apart without our intervention.
