"I can't make you feel." I've lost count of the number of energetic discussions I've had around this statement. It's certainly not a popular piece of wisdom.

I have fallen victim to the spell of chocolate cake. I think about it all the time. It's irresistible. When we were kids Mum used to make a delicious chocolate cake every Saturday to share with our friends. Now that I'm sort of an adult I think of a piece of chocolate cake as a slice of life. Every day is a slice - can I make this day as delicious as Mum's chocolate cake?
