I love you also means I love you more than anyone loves you, or has loved you, or will love you, and also, I love you in a way that no one loves you, or has loved you, or will love you, and also, I love you in a way that I love no one else, and never have loved anyone else, and never will love anyone else.
—Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything Is Illuminated
new york 1957.
If we only fell in love with people who were perfect for us…then there wouldn’t be so much fuss about love in the first place.
