I Had a Conversation With My Broken Heart....


    And, I was told,

"Better to have loved and lost, than to have never loved at all." 

  --  Saint Augustine

Come live in my heart, and pay no rent. 
   --Samuel Lover

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

Love letters are the campaign promises of the heart. 
      --Robert Friedman     

The heart is the place where we live our passions. It is frail and easily broken, but wonderfully resilient. There is no point in trying to deceive the heart.  It depends upon our honesty for its survival. 
       --Leo Buscaglia  

Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead. 
      --Oscar Wilde


I'm a gambler, I'll go with the passion!  If at first you  don't succeed, try, try again and again.   

It's worth it.

Love recklessly. Isn't "cautious love" a contradiction in terms? For me, the wonder of it is, the more you give away, the more you have to give.
