Scars are just souvenirs you never lose, "tattoos with better stories."

2. They symbolize healing.


"If your body is game enough to knit itself back together after a hard physical lesson, to make scar tissue, that means you’re still alive, means you’re on the path toward healing." -Dana Jennings, The New York Times.

6. They relate tales of overcoming adversity.


"Our scars tell stories. Sometimes they’re stark tales of life-threatening catastrophes, but more often they’re just footnotes to the ordinary but bloody detours that befall us on the roadways of life." -Dana Jennings, The New York Times.

7. Scars tell stories of hope.


"Sad words are just another beauty. A sad story means, this storyteller is alive. The next thing you know something fine will happen to her, something marvelous, and then she will turn around and smile." -Chris Cleave, Little Bee.
