People do not seem to realise that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
― Ralph Waldo Emerson (via psych-facts)
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.
― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross (via observando)
