Love is an extremely powerful emotion; it can be irresistible and people are often bound to pursue their love interests.
As an abstract concept, love usually refers to a deep, ineffable feeling of tenderly caring for another person. Even this limited conception of love, however, encompasses a wealth of different feelings, from the passionate desire and intimacy of romantic love to the nonsexual emotional closeness of familial and platonic love to the profound oneness or devotion of religious love. Love in its various forms acts as a major facilitator of interpersonal relationships and, owing to its central psychological importance, is one of the most common themes in the creative arts.

- —It lights the whole Sky. (Hafiz)
Love, like a river, will cut a new path
whenever it meets an obstacle.
