Motivational Monday - C. S. Lewis Quote

Amazing man...        

Happy Monday! (As the wise Pollyanna once said... the best thing about Mondays is that it's an ENTIRE WEEK before the next Monday...!)

Here's a quote that I find inspiring:
To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to 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.
Choosing to love can be tough. Painful sometimes. But without it we WILL wither. So hang in there!!!

  1. Love this quote. It reminds me of this one:

    We're never so vulnerable than when we trust someone - but paradoxically, if we cannot trust, neither can we find love or joy.
