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 (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
The loneliest moment in someone’s life is when they are watching their whole world fall apart, and all they can do is stare blankly.

I require all of the bridesmaids and groomsmen at my wedding to wear circlets.
No you have no choice. You will be elves and you will like it.
I shiver, thinking how easy it is to be totally wrong about people, to see one tiny part of them and confuse it for the whole, to see the cause and think it’s the effect or vice versa.
~ Lauren Oliver, Before I Fall
