Spontaneous reaction

Spontanneous reaction
Generic diagram of a spontaneous reaction: showing that the free energy decreases as the reaction proceeds, that the greater the slope of decrease the greater the spontaneity, and that at equilibrium the free energy is at a minimum the "equilibrium mixture" is most likely products. [2]
In chemistry, a spontaneous reaction, as contrasted with a nonspontaneous reaction, is a reaction quantified by a negative free energy change. A reaction is said to be spontaneous if it occurs without being driven by an outside force. [1]

“How can you initiate love? How can you stop love? How can you control love? Love cannot be controlled. You cannot do anything about love. You have to allow love to happen when it happens. Love is a spontaneous reaction.”
— Rob White (2011), “Love is a Spontaneous Reaction” [3]
