Treasures are Hidden Among Ruins

Route 66 AZ with iphone 6 plus in-camera app

Intellect and love are made of
different materials.

Intellect ties people in knots and risks nothing,

but love dissolves all tangles and
risks everything.

Intellect is always cautious and advises:
‘Beware too much ecstasy’,

whereas love says: ‘Oh, never mind! Take the plunge!’

Intellect does not easily break down,

whereas love can effortlessly reduce
itself to rubble.

But treasures are hidden among ruins.

A broken heart hides treasures.
