Friday Quick Quote: ‘Love Walked In”

“It was the first time! Just because there weren’t fireworks the first time doesn’t mean there will never be fireworks. We’re human; we’re adults; we teach each other; we communicate; fireworks don’t just go off, wham-bang; fireworks evolve!’

Awestruck by the utter, asinine nonsense of this metaphor, everyone is still. Into the stillness, the ample woman drops the word ‘Wrong.’ Then she says it again. ‘Wrong…I’m talking about science…Pheromones.’ The woman turns to Cornelia. ‘The chemicals in his body call out. The chemicals in your body answer. It either happens or it doesn’t.’

On top of being dumb, Cornelia is dumbfounded.”

  1. It’s always a good idea to question the pheromones. Many psychoanalyst believe the initial stages of love, otherwise known as infatuation, is nothing more than the brain’s chemical response to environmental stimuli, and one which can verge on the border of mental illness. Love is definitely a process, a process that evolves in time. However, many people may not realize this. Hence, the limbic brain’s response to environmental stimuli. Emotional life is largely housed in the limbic system, and it has a great deal to do with the formation of memories. Some theorize that these memories and emotions make us behave in ways that may seem unconventional. A great informative article can be found in the archives of National Geographic Magazine, February 2006 issue.
