@jane: other blogs, different tumblrs, good reads, sometimes people send them to me. i'm go crazy for most quotes, but this one in particular took my breath away.

@katie: i don't know the answer to that question. i really don't. i don't know if that love ever goes away or if you simply add to it with another?

"Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift."

This sums up love perfectly. Sometimes it makes no sense, but it doesn't change the fact that you're in love.
