To love at all is to be vulnerable by C.S. Lewis/Inspiring love quote

Richard Johnson painting

To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything,

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;

It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable,
