"All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another"
- Anatole France
About this Quote
This quote by Anatole France speaks to the bittersweet nature of change. It acknowledges that while change can be desired and even necessary, it can also be difficult and bring sadness. It suggests that when we make a change, we are leaving something behind that was a part of us. We must let go of our old life and the things that were a part of it in order to move forward and embrace the new. Change can be exciting and bring new opportunities, but it can also be difficult and bring a sense of loss. It is important to recognize and accept the sadness that can come with change in order to fully embrace the new life that awaits us.
