    Please explain the reasons.

    1. Enough naturally, his thoughts turned to the things and the people that..
    2. Most everybody knows what being attrracted of failing in love, feels like.

    Gratefully yours.

    instead:

    1. Naturally, his thoughts...

    2. Almost everybody knows....

    You would either have to say:
    Naturally enough, his thoughts turned to the things and the people that..
    'naturally' is an adverb qualifying 'enough'
    or
    Enough, naturally, to turn anyone's thoughts to...

    2. Most everybody knows what failing in love feels like.
    It can be either 'most people' (implying the majority of people, but not all)
    or
    'everybody' - in effect, 100% of people, or 'nearly/almost everybody'

    It's also advisable to read.....read....read....particularly literary articles, novels and any available reading material that attracts your interests or attention......with this, you will enhance your vocabulary and your knowledge about the English Language
