Pics Proving Love Is The Most Powerful Thing In The World

John Lennon once famously said, "All You Need Is Love." It's a simple statement, sure, but one that is not only incredibly profound but remarkably accurate.

Love is the most powerful force in nature. It has the power to move mountains and to defy the stars themselves. If you don't believe me, have a look below and check out these pics that prove love is the most powerful force in the world.

I would quite literally give my left arm to be in the middle of this adorable doggy sandwich. I'm not sure what's cuter: the fact that their paws are almost touching or the fact that the puppers is wearing people clothes!

All I can say is enjoy those rare moments of tranquility while they last. And don't be surprised if these two wind up hating one another for the bulk of their teen years. Eventually, siblings always find their way back.

The gift of music is one of the most beautiful things a parent can pass on to their child. My own father gave it to me, and should the day come where I ever have a son/daughter of my own — I'll pay it forward.

Letter carriers and postal workers truly are some of the unsung heroes of our society. This small gesture certainly carries a lot of weight.

This is what true love really looks like.

I know I've repeatedly said "I don't want kids," but I'm kind of melting inside looking at the footprint pajamas this little girl is wearing. I'm also a big fan of her hat.

Everyone knows that cats and dogs have been mortal enemies since the beginning of time. If these two can find a way to put their differences aside, there may be hope for the world yet.

Because "can't" never "could" do anything.

I'm a sucker for a good pun, I just can't help myself! I wonder if that's a trick you can train all cats to do?

I don't have kids and I've never really understood the compulsion. That being said, even someone as closed-minded on the subject as myself can appreciate what a powerful moment this must've been.
