The Four Loves by C.S. Lewis
“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
Evvie Drake Starts Over by Linda  Holmes

Christina Haag
“God loves you just as you are. Pray from where you are.”
Christina Haag, Come to the Edge

Christina Haag
“I did not know then that there are those you love no matter how much they hurt you, no matter how many years have passed since you felt them in the morning. I did not know how long it took to get over such a love, and that even when you did, when you loved again, you would always carry a sliver of it in your stitched-together heart. I did not know that you could love them in death, and that if one day they returned to you in a dream or half sleep, you might hold up your hand as she had done, because life and time had changed you.”
Christina Haag, Come to the Edge

Christina Haag
“Sin, in the Greek, means missing the mark. An archery term. That’s all it is. That which has kept you from God.”
Christina Haag, Come to the Edge

Arthur Phillips
“How much of life could he spend aching? Aching is not a stable condition; it must resolve into something”
Arthur Phillips, The Song Is You

Mary Ann Shaffer
“I think you learn more if you're laughing at the same time.”
Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Barrows
