I'd put it on my chest, near to my heart, in a half-circle shape, I'm thinking. I like the idea, and I like it especially because it is said by someone who is mostly divorced from emotion. I am not a romantic person but I find sometimes I want to buy into, as he puts it, "the romantic notion." It's like, I fall for it - then it happens and I realize it's not really me at all.* So I can relate to that, although I wouldn't call myself "the most hardcore, cold intellectual." - Maybe if I am lucky, someday ;)
*Or rather, it is probably more likely that the traditional romantic notion is not what I want. I have my own form of romance, I'm sure.
I guess the point is, I grapple with romance. It doesn't make sense to me and a lot of it is, well...haha "gross." But yes, some parts of me still want it sometimes.
The whole quote resonates with me quite a lot.
