“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, The Four Loves
agreed..but then its not love..its mere attachment..for when its love..u dont care if the subject only belongs to you..you simply wish for the best even though u dont attain it….love has to be selfless to be classified as love
agreed. This quote is about maintaining an open heart and vulnerability so that you can love others selflessly.
