"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 "If most of us are ashamed of shabby clothes and shoddy furniture, let us be more ashamed of shabby ideas and shoddy philosophies... It would be a sad situation if the wrapper were better than the meat wrapped inside it." Albert Einstein "The sensual mysticism of entire vertical being." E. E. Cummings "Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind; and therefore is winged Cupid painted blind." William Shakespeare "An ideal life does not exist; but a happy one can be attained." Greg Evans "Hate the sin and love the sinner." Mahatma Ghandi "If you judge people, you have no time to love them." Blessed Teresa of Calcutta "The more I give to thee, the more I have, for both are infinite." William Shakespeare "All men are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality." Martin Luther King "Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got a hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations." George Bernard Shaw "Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow." Albert Einstein "To get the full value of joy you must have someone to divide it with." Mark Twain "The only mistake in life is the lesson not learned." Albert Einstein "By all means marry. If you get a good wife you will become happy, and if you get a bad one you will become a philosopher. Socrates (470-399 B.C.)" Socrates "Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 1 Corinthians -" Bible "We should not pretend to understand the world only by the intellect; we apprehend it just as much by feeling. Therefore, the judgment of the intellect is, at best, only the half of truth, as must, if it be honest, also come an understanding of its inadequacy." Carl Jung "Remember your humanity and forget the rest." Albert Einstein "Talk not of wasted affection; affection never was wasted." Henry Wadsworth Longfellow "Romance is dead - it was acquired in a hostile takeover by Hallmark and Disney, homogenized, and sold off piece by piece." Lisa Simpson
