What you romantically refer to as the heart is really the base human ego. The ego wants it all, and if one doesn’t develop an intellect capable of rising above one’s childish ego, then one does forever remain a broken person.

After this rather clinical view of the subject, it might be hard to believe that when it comes to love I am a romantic at HEART.
