“I used to think that only the weak wear their hearts on their sleeves and fall in love. But now I know, it’s not the ones that are in love who are weak but instead the ones who are too afraid to. So, don’t be afraid of love. Fall in love, fall hard and when you’re lying on the ground, bruised and broken, pick yourself up and repeat until you find the person who will tell you in the late of night I’m here to stay.”
