“Of course I’ll hurt you. Of course you’ll hurt me. Of course we will hurt each other. But this is the very condition of existence. To become spring, means accepting the risk of winter. To become presence, means accepting the risk of absence.”
– The Little Prince
Saw this quote on Tumblr and I found it really poignant. The give and take in a relationship and how in order to achieve something, there is always something at risk. Does this mean that to feel happiness, we accept the risk of sadness?
To feel love, we accept the risk of heartbreak?
I remember reading The Little Prince when I was younger, but I think I’ll be able to better appreciate it now.
