Romeo and Juliet may have been long gone, and the tales of John Keats and Fanny Brawne's romance may continue to inspire us, but there is one thing that is never forgotten and stays common in the greatest tales from around the world- 'Love'. With the ability to move mountains and pierce through rooftops, the crackling firewoods of love can never be contained and no amount of expressions can do justice to what two people who are so deeply in love can feel.
And as quoted by Lila DiPasqua, "Once in a while, right in the middle of ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale."
