The lust for comfort, that stealthy thing that enters the house a guest, and then becomes a host, and then a master.
Lust is temporary, romance can be nice, but love is the most important thing of all. Because without love, lust and romance will always be short-lived.

Leonardo da Vinci
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
