In the great literature of all progressive societies, love is a verb. Weak people make it a feeling. They are driven by feelings. Movies (esp. Bollywood) has generally scripted us to believe that we are not responsible, that we are product of our feelings. But the bollywood script does not describe the reality. If our feelings control our actions, it is because we have abdicated our responsibility and empowered them to do so.
Evolved humans on the other side make love a verb. Their thinking is no longer a precipitate of the solution i.e. Society they are living in. After achieving a level of understanding they then define things their way, they question every customized definition that has been served to them in a platter. They dont react to their surroundings but are smart enough to analyze every aspect of it. Their visions are not mere reflections of their conditioning but are original projections taking birth from their creative minds.
IN words of Henry David Thoreau:
"I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by conscious endeavour."
