Bit of Happy #121: Doesn’t Make The World Go Round

15 Mar

“Love doesn’t make the world go round, but it makes the ride worthwhile.”
-Franklin P. Jones

Without love and compassion, where would we be in life? The world may certainly still be turning at its normal rotation, the seasons may still come and go… but without love, what do you truly have? Would our journey in life still be the same? Would we be any less complete at life’s end?

Perhaps the answers to these questions vary from person to person – but, to me – life isn’t worth living if it means there’s no such thing as love. To me, without love the ride wouldn’t be worthwhile. In fact, there would be no ride at all. Not a ride that is worth experiencing, anyway.

Today’s quote truly puts the important things in life into perspective. It’s not about the money. Or the tangible, materialistic items. Or the achieved social status. It’s not about any of those things. In the end, it’s about love. It’s about family. It’s about those special relationships you’ve built with friends and significant others. When all else fails, it’s love that will prevail above any other. Through thick and thin. Through devastation and hardship. Through fire and ice.

So even though love may not have the power to make the world go round, it certainly has the ability to changes lives. To make this life worth living. And now, let me ask you this… which one holds more power?
