The aspect of romance, divided between the heartening and the thoughtful.

Words of Wisdom – “What a Man Cries for in Romance” – Philosophy on Love – 10/11/2019

October 11, 2019

“Many fools will believe that men desire respect from a woman, though it is not so. A man cries for forgiveness, in his romance. Within every man, there is sheer guilt for his actions. A man does not think on what he could have done, but what he has done, and feels that searing guilt. A woman, however, feels guilt on inaction. Based on action, men desire forgiveness, so that he is trusted to do better, for the future. A man’s weakness is when he no longer acts to act for himself and is when he can bend his knee to the woman he loves, in pure and adoring devotion. It is when he can comprehend that he is no longer the giant, standing over her, but now makes himself the insect, showing a diamond. The diamond represents the heart. Its gleam, and her radiance, are conjoined. The diamond, for its size, represents the largest part of a man’s heart. It is revealing to a woman that his physical size and commanding voice, for his ability to partake in his brutal nature, are nothing, in contrast to his heart.”
