Scar Tissue

I have been reading Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen and will be occasionally sharing quotes I come across while reading this book…

Scar tissue has no character. It’s not like skin. It doesn’t show age or illness or pallor or tan. It has no pores, no hair, no wrinkles. It’s like a slip cover. It shields and disguises what’s beneath. That’s why we grow it; we have something to hide.
~ Susanna Kaysen, Girl, Interrupted
