As long as there have been poets, there have been love poems. After all, if love cannot inspire, what can?

Filling Empty Minds


Teach your children
From Motivational and Inspirational Quotes

Each one of us starts empty,
Just waiting to be filled,
With love and words
And things we learn;
The empty space is killed.

Displaced with all the good things,
And sometimes with the bad,
We learn from
Those around us
And the special times we’ve had.

When we are still quite empty,
In our younger years,
It’s easy for us,
To fill up,
With love and hope and fears.

It means the young are easy led,
And learn things very fast,
But bad times leave,
A dirty mark,
Even when long passed.

When spending time with young friends,
We need to think about,
The lessons that
We’re teaching them:
They’re quicker in than out.

There’s positives within this,
Because those younger minds,
Will grow and flourish
When watered with good times.

Robin Dunbar, an evolutionary psychologist, believes that wearing these “rose tinted spectacles” means you take more risks and ignore any internal voices warning you it might not be such a good idea.

The brain scans showed that the pre-frontal cortex, that part of the brain responsible for rational thought, was deactivated enabling people to get off the fence and take a risk in establishing a relationship.

The same effect is seen in both men…
