How do you view rejection?

Here's an interesting quote from Barbara Kingsolver:

"This manuscript of yours that has just come back from another editor is a precious package. Don't consider it rejected. Consider that you've addressed it 'To the editor who can appreciate my work' and it has simply come back stamped 'Not at this address.' Just keep looking for the right address."

I love that quote. It was passed around one of my writing groups today and I felt the need to share it with writers who may pass by this site.

Have a great day!
