what is more inspirational than love?

Romantic love is the most inspiring thing I can think of. 

I am not simply talking about long, lasting love either. Love is inspiring whether it’s in a couple married for fifty years, or in a shy smile passed between two strangers on the bus who never quite work up the courage to say hello.

What is more inspiring than that first glance, the first date or the first kiss? Or knowing someone so completely inside and out that you feel you couldn’t breathe without them there to breathe with you?

What inspires more emotion than that first fight, or first break up?

Love is what inspires people to write that book, make that movie, or sing that song.

Love is what leads us to scribble our hearts into our diaries, cry softly in the moonlight, or go to extraordinary lengths just to see that person smile.

Love makes us kind. It softens us. It makes us try to be the best that we can be. 

And when it comes down to it, nothing can inspire dreams like love can.
