“It was always the becoming he dreamed of, never the being.” ~ F. Scott Fitzgerald

F. Scott Fitzgerald

“One writes of scars healed, a loose parallel to the pathology of the skin, but there is no such thing in the life of an individual. There are open wounds, shrunk sometimes to the size of a pin-prick but wounds still. The marks of suffering are more comparable to the loss of a finger, or of the sight of an eye. We may not miss them, either, for one minute in a year, but if we should there is nothing to be done about it.”

~ F. Scott Fitzgerald. from Tender is the Night
