Every one of us is losing something precious to us. Lost opportunities, lost possibilities, feelings we can never get back again. That’s part of what it means to be alive.
-Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore
The only way out of the labyrinth of suffering is to forgive.
– John Green, Looking for Alaska
The same boiling water that softens the potato hardens the egg.
It’s about what you’re made of, not the circumstances.
