"Once you pass a certain age, life becomes nothing more than a process of continual loss. Things that are important to your life begin to slip out of your grasp, one after another, like a comb losing teeth. And the only things that come to take their place are worthless imitations."
1Q84, Haruki Murakami. (via whatjdid)
Lies, you may discard old ideals and expectations but is only because you were naive enough to have expectations&ideals. while everything is a process of continual loss, it is also a process of continual resurrection. learn to let go.
