“When you find out who you are, you will no longer be innocent. That will be sad for others to see. All that knowledge will show on your face and change it. But sad only for others, not for yourself. You will feel you have a kind of wisdom, very mistaken, but a mistake of some power to you and so you will sadly treasure it and grow it.”—
- A Gate at the Stairs by Lorriw Moore
I like this quote, I think its kind of interesting and powerful, but at the same time it scares me a bit, because I get the feeling its happening to me. But isn’t that inevitable?
