Book cover for All the Light We Cannot See

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.

C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

Oscar Wilde
“It is what you read when you don't have to that determines what you will be when you can't help it.”
Oscar Wilde

"After all this time?"
"Always," said Snape.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

“He desired more, yet more, and finally was not able to desire anything—for whoever knows his heart, whoever has reflected upon the moral nature of man, will certainly agree with me that there can be no pleasure for us without desire.”
