The heart has its own reasons...

I lifted this from a calendar entry for Valentine's Day:
French philosopher Blaise Pascal (1623-62) wrote ‘Le coeur a ses raisons que la raison ne connaĆ®t pas’-which translates as ‘The heart has its reasons which the mind knows nothing of.’

I think it points to biochemistry beyond conscious awareness and control.
