Vulnerability is the only authentic state. Being vulnerable means being open, for wounding, but also for pleasure. Being open to the wounds of life means also being open to the bounty and beauty. Don’t mask or deny your vulnerability: it is your greatest asset. Be vulnerable: quake and shake in your boots with it. The new goodness that is coming to you, in the form of people, situations, and things can only come to you when you are vulnerable and open.Stephen Russell (via bluebiird)
"He and Voldemort and Snape, the abandoned boys, had all found home here…”
Voldemort, the oldest, who wanted power to conquer death. Snape, the middle brother, who wanted to be with the love of his life, even after death. And Harry, the youngest, who wanted a peaceful life. The Three Brothers.
