Welcoming richer descriptions

Love is vivid. I never wanted the pale version. Love is full strength. I never wanted the diluted version. I never shied away from love’s hugeness but I had no idea that love could be as reliable as the sun. The daily rising of love. 
-- Jeanette Winterson, Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?

I always thought it was an either/or proposition -- the hot and passionate type vs. the cool, comforting/ comfortable one. Surprise, surprise: love is more multi-dimensional than I had given it credit for, and for this, I'm grateful.
