Empty Hearts or Loving Hearts?

We can respond to the inevitable pain of life in two ways. The person whose heart has been broken and gives up loving ends up with a broken heart. The person with a broken heart who continues to love has a full heart knowing that everything we love we lose through death or abandonment. That is why there are only two kinds of hearts: empty hearts and loving hearts. It takes courage to face the inevitable losses and yet, in spite of it all, to keep on loving and being open to life”
