vulnerable.

"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, The Four Loves


"Wizard of Oz: As for you, my galvanized friend, you want a heart. You don't know how lucky you are not to have one. Hearts will never be practical until they can be made unbreakable. 
Tin Woodsman: But i still want one."


L. Frank Baum, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

No matter if hearts can be broken, at least it means that we are able to feel something.

No ponto =)
Gosto de me lembrar dessa frase sempre que tenho que fazer certas coisas.
"Hey, o meu coração pode partir... mas ao menos senti alguma coisa." =)
Gostei de ler, obrigado LaVieEnBleu =)

Obrigada! :-) Também acho que bem pior do que por vezes ter alguns momentos menos felizes é andar-se por aí "adormecido"... Parabéns pelo blog, é um cantinho que gosto muito de visitar.
