The World Will Break Your Heart

March 5, 2013

Quote, Writing

The world will break your heart — love it anyway.

Do not curl up in your shell and wait for it to go away – it’s going to do that whether or not you turn your back and probably sooner than would be comfortable to know.

Be a brave writer.  Say the things you are meant to say.

“I don’t think there’s any point in being Irish if you don’t know that the world is going to break your heart eventually. I guess that we thought we had a little more time.”
– Daniel Patrick Moynahan, reacting to the assassination of John F. Kennedy, November 1963
