Thought for the Day

All changes, even the most longed for,
have their melancholy; for what we leave
behind us is a part of ourselves; we must
die to one life before we can enter another.
~ Anatole France*

* Quoted from The Crime of Sylvestre Bonnard (1881), Part II, Chapter 4

Anatole France (1844-1924), French Poet, Novelist, and Journalist; Winner of 1921 Nobel Prize in Literature

No matter how positive the change ... change remains change and adjusting.
