The Pursuit of Happiness

“But the fact remains that you’re not going to totally get over it.  It’s just too big, too consequential.  The pain will always be there.  It’s one of the many rotten things about life:  the way it becomes an accumulation of griefs, both big and small.  But survivors – and sweetheart, you definitely fall into that category – figure out how to live with all that grief.  Because, like it or not, grief is kind of interesting, and kind of essential.  Because it gives things real import.”


From The Pursuit of Happiness, Douglas Kennedy
