Ralph Waldo Emerson was an American poet and essayist, the father of the Transcendentalist movement in the beginning of the 19th century.

"All mankind loves a lover", this sentence was famously quoted by Ralph Waldo Emerson. The meaning of the sentence is fairly simple; it means that everyone loves a person who is in love. Basically, what it means to say is that love is a universal emotion and can not be replaced by hate. Love comes naturally to a person and cannot be helped, due to the unifying nature of love, lives are held together. When a person is in love, one cannot detest him for it; on the other hand, it would be other wise. In simple words, all it means is that love is a beautiful thing; you will only be appreciated if you show it.
