    I Am Proud Of My Heart

    I'm proud of my heart.  It's been played, stabbed, cheated, burned and broken,  but somehow it still works. There is nothing more beautiful than a person whose heart has been torn apart, but still believes in the beauty of love.

    “When I try to express an emotion in prose,

    I find that there’s a little metronome inside of me which tries to convert it—at least as far as meter goes—into poetry. It’s a means of expressing feelings. I think that science has been separated artificially from feelings."

    “A heart given freely is the most vulnerable

    and selfless thing one can offer another human being. It can be as fragile and needy as a newly born infant, or as solid and self-supporting as a granite pillar, yet it is the hands of the recipient that determines its ultimate fate.” ― Mark W Boyer
