"Love with all your brain"
This past weekend, I was chatting with a party bus driver, and I'm not sure how we got on the subject, but he said, "I don't like when people say, 'I love with you all of my heart.' The heart is just an organ to pump blood through your body. You love someone with your brain."
I found this very interesting, and true, too! You really don't love someone with your heart; you love someone with your mind. He brought up the good point that if someone were to become a "vegetable" or to lose his/her memory, just because the heart is still beating, that doesn't mean he/she knows how to love you. How you feel about someone is all in your head. Your brain allows you to feel emotion; your heart just may have physical reactions to that mental emotion (ex. beating really hard and fast when you're nervous or scared).
You never know when or where you may hear some good advice or interesting thoughts! So the next time you really care about someone, tell him/her, "I love you with all of my brain."
