time than ever before as we do not spend much of our time doing
the routine chores now.

Yes, when you are in love.
Your heart has a special bouncy beat as you think of your
beloved all the time - remembering the last phone call over and

your life or a very cherished aim.
This works until you overcome the challenge.

"You will be like an empty mirror.
"Whatsoever is reflected is always new because the mirror is
empty, it cannot compare.
It cannot say, "I have seen this face before."
Bored people end up committing suicide and kill their bodies.
