Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs;

Being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers’ eyes;

Being vexed, a sea nourished with loving tears.


These lines spoken by Romeo in Shakespeare’s masterpiece, Romeo and Juliet, give us a very shallow view of love. Love, to Romeo, is really only infatuation. That’s how the world sees it. The world thinks that love is merely an emotion. Love for one another is based on feelings.
