Quotable Tuesday

“It’s understandable for people to want all their favorite things to happen, but the crazy thing is to think that they can avoid all the hard things. To want everything you ever dreamed of, to the exclusion of anything hard, that feels common to me now in a way that is hurting people. They’re ignoring how much good there is in being present for the hardest parts of your life.”
-Louis CK as quoted in “Louis CK: The Rolling Stone Interview” by Brian Hiatt, Rolling Stone (April 25, 2013)

Many thanks to Amy for giving me this article and insisting I read it. Lots to think about there.

  1. Maya, Thanks for sharing that. It’s a great essay. I love the ending, particularly: “If we want the rewards of being loved we have to submit to the mortifying ordeal of being known.” Because that is the kicker, right?

    I needed this today, in particular. Thank you, thank you.
