I personally feel that life throws many unanswerable questions at us and one of them is that “Does love make one a fool or do only fools fall in Love?”. I saw this question posted by one of my friends and understood that it’s a quotable quote by “Orhan Pamuk”, a Turkish novelist, screenwriter, academic and recipient of the 2006 Nobel Prize in Literature. Yes,only an artistic brain can ask such questions
The interesting part about this question is, we have different answers to it at different phases of our life. And contradicting part of this question is that it has two questions in it which can only be answered by the ones who knows love truly. I frankly don’t have answer for this but I decided to discuss my opinion on this because this question may help lot of people think wise and act accordingly
First thing I wanna discuss here is that, we actually could not answer this unless and until we fall in Love and “FAIL” in it. “FAIL”, I’m stressing this again because failure only comes when you try for something sincerely.
Before going into our question, I just want to discuss about love, which is happening between two genders very commonly these days.
I have found different meanings for love in web – One say “a strong feeling of affection”, second says “a great interest and pleasure in something”, third says “feel deep affection or sexual love for (someone)”
So I observed three words from the above three meanings, “Strong”, “Great” and “Deep”. I have different thoughts on them and those are like, you must be strong enough to accept your partner as they are, Great enough to understand their lifestyle and act accordingly, deep enough to not let any other person attract you even if your relation seems to be unstable. So Love has an intense meaning and it’s not very easy to judge what love is. If it’s possible, then we would already have a book on “Conditions to be followed if in Love”.
Love is always one-sided, even though it has two persons involve in it. You give and give and give, do not expect the same and if you do, you either get disappointed or you’ll just quit. I’m discussing this because it is the most important part of our question and I’m sure you will agree with me if you continue reading.
Okay, now coming to our actual question, “Does love make one a fool or do only fools fall in Love?”, Expecting something makes us fools because you can’t go into someone’s mind and check if they are loving you as you are doing them. Every person has a different style to express what they feel and hence you have one. This is the main reason behind love failures in most cases. If you are not satisfied with the way your partner is behaving, that is completely fine!! Go, have some tea, watch Television, do your favorite work, eat and sleep. Mark my words, if we are missing our Life when in Love, obviously you are a fool trying to make love as your life. I will never agree with Love being a part of life. Love is just an option and it’s your choice to make it a part of your life.
It’s completely your choice to be a fool and I think you don’t need any explanation for “Only fools falling in love” because no one could ever be a fool without falling in love and being a fool is also your decision. If you do not want to be a fool, Just live and let them live. Happiness flows and Love blossoms.
Now decide, Will you allow love to make you a fool?
