The Art Of Persuasion

Quote of the day:

People have a peculiar pleasure in making converts, that is, in causing others to enjoy what they enjoy, thus finding their own likeness represented and reflected back to them.
-Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

I told her... to tag along with me.
Spending life like it's a shopping spree.

I told her to relax and always be free.If mortals made her mad to count to three.

I told her age was just a number.
Never was she to worry about my being younger.

I told her... roses shouldn't always be red.
That life could be colourful like a flowerbed.

I told her to leave everything behind.

We would start afresh with souls entwined.
I told her not to shed anymore tears on this occasion.
This love equation.
This is my art.
The art of persuasion.
