“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 Ros
My grandmother passed away not much less than a month ago, and I can honestly say that she was one of the most beautiful people I have known. I love this quote, because it gives me every reason to believe she was beautiful. She was strong, passionate and wise. She was loving; she was caring. She was everything a granddaughter could hope for, and I am thankful to have known and loved her.
