Perhaps we do not WANT to love someone, but we do anyways. I would say out of EVERYTHING, love is the greatest (and therefore also the worst.) We cannot have the good without the bad: sour makes the opposite so much sweeter! On a side note does the following classify as EVERYTHING: in mathematics there are only four operators:

+*-/

...should we assign each operator a number:

+=1
*=2
-=3
/=4

and apply the following:

1*2*3*4

...does this give us everything?

Put simply EVERY possible calculation is achieved:

+*-/
+*/-
+-*/
+-/*
+/*-
+/-*

*+-/
*+/-
*-+/
*-/+
*/+-
*/-+

-+*/
-+/*
-*+/
-*/+
-/+*
-/*+

/+*-
/+-*
/*+-
/*-+
/-+*
/-*+

There are ONLY twenty-four possible combinations (1*2*3*4). That is ALL! Of course this excludes an equals sign (=) but that is always the fifth operator and is needed to provide the answer. I have attempted to discover the correct order of the operators as follows but without much luck (so far). An operator must be assigned to a number but must EQUAL the number given, for example,

12345
+*-/=

1+2*3-4/5=1

The closest I have come, and the order I am most satisfied with is:

(5*4)/((3+2)-1)=20/4=5

So then ((X*4)/4)=X (which it does.)

However to return to your philosophical posing I believe everyone wants love, but only if it IS love. We are with nothing should we not have love. I myself wish to FEEL love but until that moment will reject all. I believe such an entity only arrives AFTER one is prepared for such a thing: love only comes to those who are aware of such thing, and not before. Hence nobody loves...!

Stalking is when two people take a long romantic walk together, but only one of them knows about it.

OK, Counter said something funny - and it wasn't unintentionally so.
