protecting

If you want to know who protects you from the people that take without asking, it is the police. If you want to know who protects you from the police, it is the people who take without asking. And very often they are the same people.

Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is Illuminated

Love is a delicate thing that needs to be cosseted and protected. Love is not robust and love is not unyielding. Love can crumble under a few harsh words, or be tossed away with a handful of careless actions. Love isn’t a steadfast dog at all; love is more like a pygmy mouse lemur.

Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner

Keeping the truth from the people closest to you is how you’ll survive, and how you’ll protect them if anything goes wrong.

Harry Morgan, Dexter
