How to Avoid a Broken Heart

"To love 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 around with hobbies and little luxuries... lock it 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, impenerable, irredeemable... The only place outside of heaven where you can be perfectly safe from all the dangers of love is hell!"
- C.S. Lewis in "The Four Loves"
