“Falling in love is not at all the most stupid thing that people do, but gravitation cannot be held responsible for it”- Albert Einstein
Mass is not proportional to volume.
An object needn’t be large to hold great mass.
That girl, as tiny as a violet.
drifting in the sky like the petals of a flower draws me to her
with a force greater than the one exerted by the earth.
In a single moment, I fell and rolled toward her without a rhyme or reason,
just as Newton’s apple did.
With a thump. With a thump-thump.
My heart bounced from the heavens to the earth in a dizzying pendular motion.
Such was the moment…
I’d first fallen in love.
– Kim In-yook, “The Physics of Love”
