it is only our vanity bleeding

"Happiness comes more from loving than being loved; and often when our affection seems wounded it is only our vanity bleeding. To love, and to be hurt often, and to love again--this is the brave and happy life."

~ J. E. Buckrose [Annie Edith Jameson] (1868-1931),writer

Hmm... that sure brings clarity to some things. Good quote and great colors!
Oh to be brave and happy...
Thanks for the inspiring thoughts.

This could be a great title for a poem or a novel: Vanity Bleeding

Nice quote and art.
