there is so much beauty in the trying, and in the failing

i love the writer ada calhoun — realizing i never quoted her essay “the wedding toast i’ll never give,” so first things first:

It is easy for people who have never tried to do anything as strange and difficult as being married to say marriage doesn’t matter, or to condemn those who fail at it, or to mock those who even try. But there is so much beauty in the trying, and in the failing, and in the trying again. Peter renounced Jesus three times before the cock crowed. And yet, he was the rock upon whom Christ built his church.
