How do you pick up the threads of an old life? How do you go on, when in your heart, you begin to understand, there is no going back.
There are some things that time cannot mend. Some hurts that go too deep…that have taken hold.
~Frodo, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
I just thought this quote was very poignant and powerful… and also true for me on many levels.
