“The strongest love is the love that can demonstrate its fragility.”
― Paulo Coelho
“When you love someone, truly love them, you lay your heart open to them.
You give them a part of yourself that you give to no one else,
and you let them inside a part of you that only they can hurt-
you literally hand them the razor with a map of where to cut deepest
and most painfully on your heart and soul.
And when they do strike, it’s crippling-like having your heart carved out.”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon
“They get better.”
― Haruki Murakami
“When we were children, we used to think that when we were grown-up we would no longer be vulnerable.
But to grow up is to accept vulnerability… To be alive is to be vulnerable.”
― Madeleine L’Engle
― Criss Jami
― Ian McEwan, Atonement
― Christine Feehan, Water Bound
― Courtney Cole, Every Last Kiss
― Stephen Russell, Barefoot Doctor’s Guide to the Tao: A Spiritual Handbook for the Urban Warrior
Love is not something we give or get; it is something that we nurture and grow, a connection that can only be cultivated between two people when it exists within each one of them – we can only love others as much as we love ourselves.
Shame, blame, disrespect, betrayal, and the withholding of affection damage the roots from which love grows. Love can only survive these injuries if they are acknowledged, healed and rare.”
― Brené Brown, The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are
