C.S. Lewis on Love

14 01 2010

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to be sure of keeping it in tact you must give your heart to no one. Lock it up safe of the casket of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe and dark and motionless, airless it will change. It will not be broken but it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. The only place outside of Heaven where you can be safe from all the dangers of love is hell.” C.S. Lewis
