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.

"When we realize life does not evolve around us, we are able to see the importance of being part of a beautiful world that exists. We open ourselves up to love others and help others who need to see an example of what unconditional love looks like"

No Looking Back to our Past Lives of Sin" John 3:16, Luke 17:20-37
