Emotion Or Volition



Love as mere emotion makes for uncertainty
Love as clear volition makes for security
Love as mere emotion makes for scurrility
Love as clear volition makes for gentility
Love as mere emotion makes for fragility
Love as clear volition makes for nubility
Love as mere emotion makes for an anarchy
Love as clear volition makes for civility
Love as mere emotion makes for futility
Love as clear volition makes for utility
Love as mere emotion makes for hostility
Love as clear volition makes for tranquility
Love as mere emotion makes for debility
Love as clear volition makes for ability
Love as mere emotion makes for obscurity
Love as clear volition makes for futurity
Love as mere emotion makes for lability
Love as clear volition makes for stability
