Sometimes life can take a lot out of us, and when this happens, some words of wisdom sure help us pull through. Here are 10 quotes from the wise that will help you through any and all that you face. Sometimes, we all need a little comfort.
10. “You can talk with someone for years, everyday, and still, it won’t mean as much as what you can have when you sit in front of someone, not saying a word, yet you feel that person with your heart, you feel like you have known the person for forever…. connections are made with the heart, not the tongue.”
― C. JoyBell C. (poetry and literature author)
Does it ever make you feel anxious sitting with someone in silence? You may fear that they’ll think you’re boring. This quote is a good reminder that sometimes we should savor the silence. After all, the best things in the world are felt in our hearts, not through the ringing in our ears.
9. “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, 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 (psychiatrist, author, and pioneer in near-death studies)
Take it from this lovely lady who has seen the ugliest depths of the human mind first-hand. People who have been through a lot often tend to think that they’re only half the person they used to be before they were faced with so many challenges. They tend to miss their uncrushed, naive spirit and the way they used to look at the world. While this is understandable, it’s also important that these people realize all the good their hardships gave them: strength, gratitude, and unwavering passion.
