“It’s so hard to forget pain, but it’s even harder

to remember sweetness. We have no scar to show

for happiness. We learn so little from peace.”

– Chuck Palahniuk

  1. I love this. So observably true.

  2. I will not glorify the process of acquiring wounds , whatever much it has taught me. I would never want another to suffer it , I will do everything in my power to protect anyone from pain that gives you scars and lessons of a life time. I know the attitude of this poem does dissolve in tears , flash backs and self righteous isolation.
    Well said.

    Wisdom or happiness ?
    I rather be foolish.
