"Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get — only with what you are expecting to give — which is everything."
“The love that you withhold is the pain that you carry lifetime after lifetime.”- Alex Collier
- Mark Twain
“Life is short, Break the Rules. Forgive quickly, Kiss SLOWLY. Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably And never regret ANYTHING That makes you smile.”
“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. The alternative to tragedy, or at least to the risk of tragedy, is damnation. The only place outside Heaven where you can be perfectly safe from all the dangers and perturbations of love is Hell.”- C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves
A graceful way to learn how to let things go. I highly recommend it, if you have the opportunity to watch it. – Thanks Barb, for reminding me this one! XX
"Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country."- Anaïs Nin
