We live coiled in shells of loneliness, until love leaves its high holy temple and comes into our sight to liberate us into life… Yet if we are bold, love strikes away the chains of fear from our souls. We are weaned from our timidity in the flush of love’s light, we dare be brave, and suddenly we see that love costs all we are and will ever be. Yet it is only love which sets us free. ~ Maya Angelou (Photo by Kristian Schuller)
