Wednesday Words

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
