Most things break, including hearts. The lessons of life amount not to wisdom, but to scar tissue and callus.
If you gave someone your heart and they died, did they take it with them? Did you spend the rest of forever with a hole inside you that couldn’t be filled?
By night, Love, tie your heart to mine, and the two together in their sleep will defeat the darkness.
An understanding heart is everything in a teacher, and cannot be esteemed highly enough. One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child.
