Catullus said it best...

That man seems to me to be equal to a god,
That man, if it is right to say, seems to surpass the gods,
who sitting opposite to you repeatedly looks at you
and hears your sweet laughter, something which robs miserable me of all feelings:
for as soon as I look at you, squishy, no voice remains in my mouth.
But the tongue is paralyzed, a fine fire spreads down through my limbs, the ears ring with their very own sound, my eyes veiled in a double darkness.
Idleness, toe, is your trouble;
idleness is what delights you and moves you to passion;
idleness has proved ere now the ruin of kings andprosperous cities
