However, there are times when simple gestures make a bigger and better impression. Those moments of silence when nothing is said but only passion, tension and eye contact remains... yes, those simple and non-extravagant moments are what fulfills one's life.

Actions speak louder than words right? You can say "I love you," and it will have a huge impact on a person the first few times... but soon after the hundredth "I love you," the phrase turns into a banal exchange of words - replacing the good-byes, hellos and awkward silences. The actions that accompany those eight little letters are what makes it more meaningful. They make an everlasting impression on the heart.
