“I once knew a woman who liked to imagine Love in the guise of a sturdy dog, one that would always chase down the stick after it was thrown and return with his ears flopping around happily.
Completely loyal, completely unconditional. And I laughed at her, because even I knew that love is not like that.
Love is a delicate thing that needs to be cosseted and protected.
Love is not robust and love is not unyielding.
Love can crumble under a few harsh words, or be tossed away with a handful of careless actions…”
Andrew Davidson, The Gargoyle
“Love is not robust and love is not unyielding.”
A profane truth that many imagine away, but I believe
it is a wisdom that sources inner peace.
