I was watching Wall-E a few nights ago, with my family and some friends. As I normally seem to do, (only if I've seen the movie before) I started thinking. Throughout the whole movie what is the one thing that Wall-E wants?
Doesn't everyone want to find love though? I think there isn't anyone who doesn't want to feel wanted at some point and time, if not always. But doesn't love always come with hurt? One of my favorite quotes- “To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket- safe, dark, motionless, airless--it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable.” C.S. Lewis. I think I've used it before, but it's so true. God's love is the only thing we can cling to without our hearts getting broken. His perfect love.
I really have no clue why I'm pointing this out. Something inside of me, I guess.
Weird to think, I'll be gone when this is posted. :)
