Everyone thinks that love comes from the heart, but it truly comes from the brain. Love is to be able to wholeheartedly care for someone with no need for reciprocation. Love knows no bounds. When you love someone it doesn’t matter who they are, what they are or what they believe in. This brain is a statement; it is bold in its proclamation that love is love. Through love comes passion and when faced with passion you have the power to make a difference.
