“Older people are wise not only because they have lived longer. They're wise because they have lost more.”
Mari Ruti, The Case for Falling in Love: Why We Can't Master the Madness of Love -- And Why That's the Best Part

“We routinely replace damanged parts of ourselves with new ones that are, arguably, more resilient, more able to handle challenges. As long as we avoid the trap of growing our skin so thick that nothing gets through, getting bruised can only boost our ability to cope with whatever life throws at us.”
Mari Ruti, The Case for Falling in Love: Why We Can't Master the Madness of Love -- And Why That's the Best Part

“Life has a way of turning things around. Those who mourn well know this. As a result, they also live well--with courage and curiosity.”
Mari Ruti, The Case for Falling in Love: Why We Can't Master the Madness of Love -- And Why That's the Best Part
