“Most people don’t grow up. It’s too damn difficult. What happens is most people get older.” - Maya Angelou
生日總會讓人回顧，我這幾年到底是長了智慧，還只是長了年紀？我有沒有走在”對的但可能難走”的路上？我有沒有勇氣去說出”真的但可能被人討厭”的事實？有沒有不外求而往內看？有沒有為人著想給人溫暖？也給自己溫暖？“變老”只需要過完日子，但“長大”需要過完難關。在每一次逆境時都看到讓自己grow up的養分，get wiser, not older.
Maya Angelou // "Most people don’t grow up. It’s too damn difficult. What happens is most people get older. That’s the truth of it. They honor their credit cards, they find parking spaces, they marry, they have the nerve to have children, but they don’t grow up. Not really. They get older. But to grow up costs the earth, the earth. It means you take responsibility for the time you take up, for the space you occupy. It’s serious business. And you find out what it costs us to love and to lose, to dare and to fail. And maybe even more, to succeed. What it costs, in truth. Not superficial costs, anybody can have that, I mean in truth."
