“To love at all is to be 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 round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that 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

    Have always loved that C.S. Lewis! Thanks! I used this one for my quote of the day on facebook!

  2. How sad this world would be if everyone locked their hearts in a casket of selfishness for fear of their hearts being broken. Love is synonymous with happiness. You can’t have one without the other.

      So true, It’s also interesting that some of the most angry and unhappy people I meet seem to be devoid of the ability to love others as well as the ability to love themselves.

      You’re with yourself twenty-four hours a day, Seven days a week. If you don’t love who you are or feel comfortable in your skin then you’re in for a long, unhappy life no matter how short your life may be.
