The most beautiful things in the world are “Emotions”. Emotions are blessings for the people who cannot see the world, hear the world but can only feel the world. It becomes a weapon for the poeple who are blind and deaf. This is beacuse , the only way they can understand the world is by their feelings and emotions.

A person is slave of his emotions and emotions in turn are the slave of person’s thought. So, it simply means that thought of a person influences his emotion.

Sometimes she has feelings for him, then the next she don’t. She wants to talk to him, then the next she don’t feel like talking to him. Sometimes she needs to do all the possible things for him, then the next she thinks that he is no more important in her life, he is no more special for him.
