"And sometimes, when you fall, you fly", Liz, #London | "This is part of a longer quote from a #NeilGaiman book. I like it because it's more nuanced than those quotes that insist every bad experience is a learning opportunity, or a gateway to better things. I find that insulting. Some bad things just aren't an opportunity - sometimes the fall does kill you. There is too much evidence of that in the current refugee crisis, too much destruction: it's heartbreaking. But some bad things really do create opportunity or growth. And I find it helpful to remind myself of that when I'm feeling crushed." | "You know what happens when you dream of falling? Sometimes you wake up. Sometimes the fall kills you. And sometimes, when you fall, you fly", Neil Gaiman, The Sandman Vol. 6: Fables and Reflections.
