The waves of emotion come and go. No matter how disturbed the surface gets, the depths of the ocean remain undisturbed. We are like this too. On the surface, emotions pull us this way and that. Love blossoms and wilts. But there is part of us that remains undisturbed, growing and learning.
Not all love is false, not all love is true.
The worst things that have happened to us teach us just as much, if not more, as the best things.
Don’t let pain close your heart to joy; don’t let disillusionment close your eyes to truth. The world is vast. It can rain for a morning, then shine with bright light for the rest of the day. And though a dark night follows, it is darkest before the dawn, when the day rises again from its nocturnal sheets.
