Mankind is hooked upon the behaviour of obsession, and nowhere is this more evident than in our desire to find the love of our life with whom the rest of our life can be happily spent. We also nurture a need to be loved as no other ever has been.
The annals of history show us the totality of what mankind is prepared to spend, lose, give up or have taken from him in order to secure the love he craves. Often, this obsession with another makes love misdirected and as hearts are fixed unavailingly, families can be split asunder, fortunes are lost, countries abandoned and treasured dreams allowed to drift away as though they never held any substance in the heart.
But, on those rare times that true love blossoms and endures all obstacles in its path, nothing, simply nothing from one's past can ever hope to compare with the way its presence makes one feels today."William Forde: April 10th, 2018.
