Quote

Every time we decide to love someone, we open ourselves to great suffering, those we most love cause us not only great joy but also great pain. The greatest pain comes from leaving. Yet, if we want to avoid the suffering of leaving, we will never experience the joy of loving. Love is stronger than fear, life stronger than death, hope stronger than despair. Trust that the risk of loving is always worth it.
