Fact #216: Shattering

I like reading. I like language. I think it's magical (that's right, magical!) how simple words arranged in the right order can carry so much meaning and reveal such deep truths. For example, this quote:
Life does not accommodate you, it shatters you. It is meant to, and it couldn't do it better. Every seed destroys its container or else there would be no fruition.
-- Florida Scott-Maxwell
I love that. It's true, it's poetic, and it explains so succinctly why life is simultaneously wonderful and difficult.

So go ahead, life. Shatter me.

PS. I'm also very interested in being shattered after I die. Because it's earth-friendly, and also it reminds me of that scene from Terminator 2.

Til tomorrow!
