You live and you learn.

"And now we're supposed to go back to our normal lives. That's what people do. They have these amazing experiences with another person and then they just go home and clean the bathroom or whatever."
--Susane Colasanti, 'When It Happens'

"Out there people are working and arguing and laughing, living their beautiful, terrible lives, falling in love and having babies and being bored out of their skulls and feeling depressed, then being consoled by some little thing like watching the patterns the light makes through the leaves of trees, casting shadows on the sidewalks. I remember the line from that poem now. Downward to darkness, on extended wings."
--Kim Addonizio

"You live and you learn. At any rate, you live."
--Douglas Adams
