it's all fine to say...

Thursday, October 29, 2009

It’s all fine to say, “Time will heal everything, this too shall pass away. People will forget”—and things like that when you are not involved, but when you are there is no passage of time, people do not forget and you are in the middle of something that does not change.

~ John Steinbeck, Cannery Row, 1935

I have found that it is a very true thing. Passage of time does allow us the recovery we sometimes crave.
