Humanity has achieved some pretty impressive feats since we finally figured out the wheel some 6000 years ago. We have conquered the skies, generated electricity, stepped foot on the moon, and even developed spacecraft that is as far as twenty-three billion kilometres from the earth!
Nevertheless, there are still tones of mysteries about our world we are yet to uncover, let alone our human body. For instance: Why do we have fingerprints? Why is laugher contagious? Why do we yawn? And the biggest mystery of all, why do we love?
According to the Harvard Gazette, over 6600 scientific papers have been published on love. It is estimated that as of 2018, The National Institutes of Health (NIH) conducted at least 18 clinical trials on the mysterious phenomenon and counting. If you ask me, I think the scientific community should leave this one to the poets.
Here’s our collection of love quotes from the world’s poets, old and new. These quotes do not attempt to dissect love but merely showcase it in its diverse manifestation. We may not understand why it exists, but I think we can all agree that it is a beautiful thing that everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime.
