Perfectly Stated

I received the best comment today, it was just what I needed:

"If our vocabulary did not contain the words trouble, adversity, calamity and grief it could not contain the words bravery, patience and self-sacrifice. Those who face no calamity will need no courage. Mysterious though it is, the human characteristics we admire most grow in a soil with a strong mixture of trouble."

Thank you Jessica! I tried to comment back to you on your blog, but I couldn't get it to go through. I love quotes so much and this one was perfect :o)


  1. "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."
