Carried away

The Northern Way by Trichardsen

“But it is only true love that can break all curses, and turn ugliness into beauty. If you want to make sure of keeping your heart intact, you must give it to no one, wrap it carefully with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness and fears. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless,airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. If you want to be beautiful, you must be loved.”

- C. S. Lewis
