The Beauty of Scars
The Japanese believe that when something has suffered damage and has a history, it becomes more beautiful, so they repair broken objects with gold. Instead of trying to hide defects and cracks, these are accentuated and celebrated, as they have now become the strongest part of the piece —because the repaired pottery is even stronger than the original, and more beautiful.

The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places. —Ernest Hemingway
