It cost so much to be a full human being that there are very few who have the enlightenment, or the courage, to pay the price….  One has to abandon altogether the search for security, and reach out to the risk of living with both arms.  One has to embrace the world like a lover, and yet demand no easy return of love.  One has to accept pain as a condition of existence.  One has to court doubt and darkness as the cost of knowing.  One needs a will stubborn in conflict, but apt always to the total acceptance of every consequence of living and dying.

Human beings are funny.  They long to be with the person they love but refuse to admit openly.  Some are afraid to show even the slightest sign of affection because of fear.  Fear that their feelings may not be recognized, or even worst, returned.  But one thing about human beings puzzles me the most is their conscious effort to be connected with the object of their affection even if it kills them slowly within.
