“If he wanted the heights of joy, he must have, if he could find it, a great love… But great joy through love always seemed to go hand in hand with frightful pain. Still he thought, the joy would be worth the pain – if indeed they went together. If there were a choice – and he suspected there was – a choice between, on the one hand, the heights and the depths and, on the other hand, some sort of safe, cautious middle way, he, for one, here and now chose the heights and the depths.”
~Sheldon Vanauken, A Severe Mercy

Let me know how you feel about it…
