  1. yes, that is a beautiful quote and sometimes exactly how it happens. I read this and thought you might love it too. made me cry right in the middle of a tea shop where I was studying…

    “When you go,
    if you go,
    And I should want to die,
    there’s nothing I’d be saved by
    more than the time
    you fell asleep in my arms
    in a trust so gentle
    I let the darkening room
    drink up the evening, till
    rest, or the new rain
    lightly roused you awake.
    I asked if you heard the rain in your dream
    and half dreaming still you only said, I love you.”
    ― Edwin Morgan, New Selected Poems

    • I love John Green. It took me a while to figure out which quote needed to go with that particular drawing of mine. I just didn’t find a quote equating love to the warm embrace of summer rainfall.
