When does it matter if we are ruled by passion over reason? How do we reconcile both?
Reason, by virtue of its soundness is stability, while passion, by its intensity is volatile.
And so I was asked if, in love, I would rather be loved with passion or reason?
I would rather stick with reason, despite the risk of boredom, because I would rather pursue someone out of reason as well. It is but fair to ask for what I am able to give.
But of course to be loved with passion is truly enticing. It is attractive yet fleeting, like stories of whirlwind romances. But the thought of having to reciprocate it with the same ardor is quite daunting and frightening.
Is it not possible to have both rule our decisions?
