"There’s a trick to the 'graceful exit.'
It begins with the vision to recognize when a job,
a life stage,
or a relationship is over — and let it go.
It means leaving what’s over without denying its validity
or its past importance to our lives.
It involves a sense of future,
a belief that every exit line is an entry,
that we are moving up,
rather than out."
— Ellen Goodman
