Schopenhauer on Love

Nothing is more important than love, because the survival of our species depends on it.
But love has nothing to do with happiness. It is simply our biolgical animalistic way of telling us to propogate the species to create optimally healthy offspring.
Therefore love does not bring happiness. Happiness is attained by other ways.
– Schopenhauer
