“We are not what we know but what we are willing to learn.”
MARY CATHERINE BATESON

“The timing of death, like the ending of a story, gives a changed meaning to what preceded it.”
Mary Catherine Bateson

“The critical question about regret is whether experience led to growth and new learning. Some people seem to keep on making the same mistakes, while others at least make new ones. Regret and remorse can be either paralyzing or inspiring. [p. 199]”
Mary Catherine Bateson, Composing a Further Life: The Age of Active Wisdom
