Love Quotes

Updated on January 28, 2014

Why Do Fools Fall in Love?

It happens to us all, that inevitable moment that you meet that special someone who makes your heart skip a beat. The same someone who knows who you really are and still loves you anyway....

Throughout a person's life they may fall in love once, twice, or several times, in search of their one true love. To love and be loved is one of the most important natural instincts you are born with. Theories about why people fall in love vary to a great degree, after all love is a unique, individual experience.

Love can be as hard to find as it is to lose one's love, yet in the end is worth the effort when you find that person you can share your dreams, laughter, and life with. For those who may not have found their soulmate, don't give up searching, love always finds you when you least expect it....
