I love when I run across a meaningful quote. I love the feeling I get when I read something that resonates with my situation, where I am, or something I’m experiencing. I also enjoy being able to pass along a quote to someone else and hopefully help them obtain a new perspective or gain strength from it.
Some quotes I’ve seen lately that I’ve really enjoyed are:
“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.”
– Elizabeth Kubler Ross
“When people walk away from you, let them go, your destiny is never tied to anyone who leaves you, and it doesn’t mean they are bad people. It just means that their part in your story is over.”
(I wasn’t able to find this as a direct quote, but from what I found, it seems it comes at least in part from T.D. Jakes.)
“We see mainly what we look for.”
