“What if we take this seriously? What gifts is it going to give us if we love something, and we love it with rigor, and we love it with commitment?”—Reading Harry Potter as a Sacred Text
Strikes me as an important question for many things in our lives that we trivialize because they aren’t “important” enough. What happens when we choose to love something, whether it deserves it or not, and how does it change it/them/us in the process?
The only caveat is to try to love wisely. It’s impossible to know where love will lead us, but if the chances are good a love will lead us down a bad path, perhaps it would be better to choose a different one.
