joy + sorrow = destiny

All this talk of heartbreak generally leads to ducked glances and awkward silences and thus I thought it necessary to add one (hopefully) illustrative quote to the mix:

Only by joy and sorrow does a person know anything about themselves and their destiny. They learn what to do and what to avoid. – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

I can only hope that I will have the courage to embrace life’s joy and sorrows as and when they make their appearance.
