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)
