Love is NOT the 'answer', instead, love is the question.
The answer is,"YES!"
Hmmm, I think I've heard this somewhere before...
As a child, I was inoculated with a phonograph needle that skips, and repeats itself, ad nauseum...
Sometimes love can make the world go mad.
Oh, yes, indeed. Very astute observation, Hilda!
Love is only thing that I believe I have. I think it is hope.
Thanks, Ab. They do always seem to go hand in hand, don't they?
sometimes I think They are inseparable.
Love is a dysfunction of ego, a mind disease of sorts; you feel complete as a person until you meet someone who makes you feel incomplete unless you are together.
It does often feel like a disease - you've got a great point here - so does it make the world go around?
The world revolves on two ancient basics: fear and greed.
I have heard it said from insiders at Wall Street markets and it has been since the metaphor of "Eden".
Fear and greed do sadly always rule Earth's rotation.
Love, romantic love, also certainly seems not to rule, also sadly, in that which intoxicated like wine, now somehow satisfies like bread.
(If love made the world go 'round, we'd be in Reno, Nevada, where legalized protitution bankrolls local school budgets.)
If it makes you better, I DO LOVE your questions!
So what about just "love", not sex, love - maybe that's makes the world go around?
I DO LOVE your convoluted yet oddly clear answers!
Angular momentum and the sun's and moon's tug make the world go round; filial and parental love and romantic love do not at all affect Earth's rotation.
Love will not pay the rent, heal a broken limb or stop a war.
Lust, fear and greed, only, have that planetary centrifugal force.
Sorry, Jean, as I do love thee, sorely.
Hmmm, well, lust and fear will not pay the rent, heal a broken limb or stop a war either... greed may pay the rent if you're lucky but probably greed will get you thrown in jail.
The hope of finding love or maintaining found love will make humans go to great extents to pay rent, heal broken limbs and stop wars.

Yes, Yes, and YES! Sometimes Love is the only thing pushing the entire world. But love itself sometimes needs a push or a kickstart. Love makes us get out of bed in the morning, smile when we don't feel it and help anyone who needs it. You don't have to be "in love" to have love, to show love, to be loving. Isn't it great? It's like a rubber band -- stretches as much as you need it to. You'll never run out! How many things can you say that about? Sure love makes you do crazy things. If you didn't, there'd be nothing to talk about. Love works incredibly well with laughter. Even self-love can be fulfilling! There are a lot of songs about unrequited love . . . well, of course! When it's requited love -- you're busy! Love, love, love . . . it may not be all we need . . . but it's a great start!
Thanks, Octavia!! Love this!
With the evolution of voluntary consciousness in humans, nature expected humans to be pragmatically and prudently driven but humans belied nature and humans till date are principally sentimentally driven. Law of Harmony is a great natural law, being essential to keep existence. In human society love as a sentiment is the force that serves to secure harmony among humans. Otherwise we shall all be disjecta membra with broken hearts and broken homes. Therefore love is vital to human existence in particular and world in general because of universality of Law of Harmony. Lastly I define love as a state of emotional interdependence between two discrete entities.
So, the mother bird who elbows her fledglings out of the nest and into open space to the cats waiting below does NOT love her offspring?
You should not look for straight line answers to every query you have in your mind. The reality is multifaceted.
"love is vital to human existence in particular and world in general" - such a great statement. Thanks so much for your input and insights, Mahesh!
"Love doesn't make the world go around Love is what makes the ride worthwhile" I forget who is responsible for this quote
Oh David, that is truly profound!
It's going to take a lot of love to make the world go round.
Mr Paul Schroeder
You really don't have to worry about it. Love is a protective reflex of natural origin like all our emotions and nature being self sustaining, so nature will manage the amount of love it needs to make the world go around. So you really don't have to bother yourself.
Mr David Tanguay
Our emotions determine our motivations and achievement of the same makes ride worthwhile in our personal view but even our emotions are a part of the scheme nature holds for us, therefore you can't say that love has no role in making the world go around.
Mahesh, the moths who gather under our porchlights, who find each other and mate, blinded by the light, also imagine themselves deeply in love.
Love is God's trick to disguise that we are xerox machines who must make copies of ourselves.
The biological purpose of keeping existence of the species is well served by the kind of love you are talking about, even if the idea is unpalatable to individual members of any species. So no need to think low of God. You are only a part of nature and you are not the whole. Therefore not you but the nature commands.
I NEVER think,"low of God"; nature cannot ever 'command' sentient human beings; that's why the prisons and jails are filled to capacity.
One must, instead, be the sole master and ruler of one's body and mind and not ever let Nature's baser urges conquer and reign.

Oh, so true, Jen! My head spins sometimes too. I like how you tied all these metaphors together!
