Franklin P. Jones once said “Love doesn’t make the world go ‘round; love is what makes the ride worthwhile.” This quote means that the world does not revolve around love, but love is what makes our lives so much better. I believe that love is so important for every single person on earth. Love is what saved us and is what makes us happy. Life is nothing without loving someone and being loved in return.

Love is who has saved us all in the beginning of time. Living is love and loving is living. Love is not being alone in this world; love keeps us close to one another. I believe love is a key to happiness and success. I believe that a person who does not love forever is not a lover. To have someone in your life or to have something in your life that you would do anything for or give up anything for is love. How does one live without love? Has anyone lived without love?

I believe love makes us happy; it brings us joy and excitement. When the one you love walks in the door and your heart is jumping or when you show the one you love how much you love them by surprising them with a romantic dinner while watching the expression on their faces, that’s love. Everyone wants to love and be loved in return at some point in their lives.

Love is not only romantic; love can also be the love of family or friendship. Supporting and trusting them and they support and trust you, I believe that to is love. Love is of a many splendid of things. Love, I believe will give you the power to reach for your dreams and achieve them. Love, I believe will give you the heart to stand for what you believe in. Love, I believe will give you the knowledge of knowing how everyone feels when they are loved or in love.

So in the end, just like at the beginning of time, love will save us all. Love is just simply love. Love cannot be explained completely, love can only be what you want and what you believe it is. Love I believe is an essential to living a happy and successful life. It will power us to do whatever we want and it will make us better people. So like Franklin P. Jones said “ Love is not what makes the world go ‘round; love is what makes the ride worthwhile.”
