A cruel, cruel thing

Things I learnt about love from South of the Border, West of the Sun by Haruki Murakami:

1. The way that you love someone can either save or destroy them.
2. The way that someone loves you can either save or destroy you.
3. Love is not quantifiable, but it is absolute.
4. Sex is a part of love, but it does not define love.
5. Someone will always get hurt.
6. You can love someone your whole life.
7. Love is physiological.
8. You can't help who you love.
9. Love is sometimes like a physical force, it sweeps you away and you can't stop your feet from leaving the ground.
10. Love can make you abandon all logic.
