When the mind encroaches upon the province of the heart, it does so by requiring assurance or conviction as a condition which must be fulfilled before there is a release of love.But love is nothing if it is not spontaneous. It cannot be a conclusion of reasoning. It is not a fruit of the spirit of bargain.If you want to be certain about the object of love before giving your love, it is only a form of calculating selfishness.
