Love isn’t practical. It isn’t meant to be easy. It doesn’t appear on command. It doesn’t let you fall for whom ever you like. It surfaces neither at the most opportune moment nor the most convenient. It’ll pair you with someone you might never have expected. It will put you face to face with endless obstacles.

It may not be practical, but love is ultimately the best thing that will ever happen to you.

Don’t blame the man in red for those socks in white.
