“Scar tissue has no character. It’s not like skin. It doesn’t show age or illness or pallor or tan. It has no pores, no hair, no wrinkles. It’s like a slip cover. It shields and disguises what’s beneath. That’s why we grow it; we have something to hide. ” — Susanna Kaysen, Girl, Interrupted

Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.

Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worst kind of suffering.
