Life Delights in Life

 

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
vulnerable.

-CS Lewis

    • We can’t lock our heart in the coffin never opened it and be dead to the world what kind of life is that… Good heavens open up be vulnerable let your heart out it what’s the worse I could happen is it doesn’t work out.. But what if it does? Hurt is temporary but true love can be forever eternal. It’s what we all seek. I live this quote. I choose the Cheshire for the imagery. As colorful as CS Lewis himself.

      • I agree with the concept. I have always agreed with the concept. I have never not agreed with the concept. If I didn’t then I would not be feeling this constant pain inside. Yes, hurt is temporary but what if it is not? What if love is temporary and pain is eternal? I suppose it is the journey that matters – but I find the journey getting tiring. I am very sorry for my lack of optimism and I will stop talking now. Sorry.
