When head and heart are busy, say,
What better can be found?
Who neither loves nor goes astray,
Were better under ground.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Is there really any need for an explanation? Goethe states that to be in love, what better thing than that. Ending with, when one is not in love they elude heartbreak or hurt but as Goethe says, you’re better off dead HAH .. I adore you Goethe.
