5. Love is merely a madness; and, I tell you, deserves

Are in love too

As You Like it- William Shakespeare
6. The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose.

A goodly apple rotten at the heart.

Merchant of Venice - William Shakespeare
7. Common sense can dictate a perfectly reasonable response to a situation while the love and passion duo will more often than not out muscle the most macho of men. Love and passion can destabilize an entire economy lest we forget the lesson learned from Helen of Troy.
