“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”
“You can’t go back and change the beginning but you can start where you are and
change the ending”
You’ve got a new story to write and it looks nothing like your past. Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines
Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start
