Vulnerable



Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken
If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one,
not even an animal. Wrap it carefully around hobbies and little luxuries;
avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in a casket,
 safe, 
dark,
 motionless,
airless,
 it will change.
 It will not be broken, it will become:
unbreakable,
impenetrable,
irredeemable.
TO LOVE IS TO BE VULNERABLE.
~C.S. Lewis

  2. Yes indeed. Love is the most powerful thing ever. Harry Potter was right, True Love will conquer darkness but it will involve much pain, suffering and loss. Rock on!

  7. Very true. To love and be loved, you must risk the greatest pain, but it is undoubtedly worth it.

  8. To never know or give love is far far worse than the pain of a broken heart.
