"I was never one to patiently pick up broken fragments and glue them back together again and tell myself that the mended whole is as good as new. What is broken is broken--and I'd rather remember it as it was at its best than mend it and see the broken places as long as I lived." Margaret Mitchell
When the Japanese mend broken objects, they fill them in with gold. They believe when something's suffered damage and has a history, it becomes more beautiful. It's time we rethink our philosophy on aging.
