„As many have discovered, it is entirely possible (although not particularly desirable) to love two people with all your heart. It is entirely possible to long for two lives, to feel that one life can't come close to containing it all.“

„most of all, I learned that it's possible for two people to fall in love all over again, even when there's been a lifetime of disappointment between them.“

Contexto: The events of the past year have taught me much about myself, and a few universal truths. I learned, for instance, that while wounds can be inflicted easily upon those we love, it's often much more difficult to heal them. Yet the process of healing those wounds provided the richest experience of my life, leading me to believe that while I've often overestimated what I could accomplish in a day, I had underestimated what I could do in a year. But most of all, I learned that it's possible for two people to fall in love all over again, even when there's been a lifetime of disappointment between them.

„To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly be broken.“

—  Clive Staples Lewis, livro The Four Loves

The Four Loves (1960)
Contexto: To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly be broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to 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. The alternative to tragedy, or at least to the risk of tragedy, is damnation. The only place outside of Heaven where you can be perfectly safe from all the dangers and perturbations of love is Hell.

„The one thing you can't trade for your heart's desire is your heart.“

Contexto: Some prices are just too high, no matter how much you may want the prize. The one thing you can't trade for your heart's desire is your heart.
