The way I see it, love is all we wanted.
To accumulate wealth is to accumulate love.
To accumulate friends is to accumulate love.
To accumulate knowledge is to accumulate love.
There's a universal promise from the world:
If you're rich you'll get more love
If you're popular you'll get more love
If you're smart you'll get more love
To buy a Mercedes Benz SLK, you hope that people will notice you, talk to you and thus develop further relationship with you.
To be friendly towards people, being nice & funny, you hope that people will like you, accept you, and share their life-stories with you.
To be smart and all-knowing, have a high-end degree from prestigious university, you hope that people will seek your advice and listen to you.
From birth to death human has been aching for love. Being loved makes you feel important.
Why is that so?
What is love?
Is it the amount of time people would sacrifice to listen to you?
Is it the awe inspiring looks, compliments and public recognitions that fuel you?
Or is it as simple as the amount of sexual pleasures that you will get?
The way I see it, "Success" in popular terms means you can do anything you want, and people will still love
you no matter what. That is the bottom line. I cannot twist or turn that natural drive from humans. It is there in every culture.
