Killing our darlings

Is there anything worse for an author than to look at sections of their work, highlight terrific material, then press delete? That's how I spent my morning. I know, I know. It will leave me with a better book and I will be glad for the changes, but...*sigh* There were some good lines, sections, and scenes in there, then poof. Gone forever. I'll take a break, come back, and start the healing process with fresh words. *sniffle*
