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. —Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Amazing quote and such a meaningful, yet simple picture to go along with it.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.  —Aristotle
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.

You just can't beat the person who never gives up. —Babe Ruth
Your truest friends are the ones who will stand by you in your darkest moments-because they're willing to brave the shadows with you-and in your greatest moments-because they're not afraid to let you shine. —Nicole Yatsonsky
In family life, love is the oil that eases friction, the cement that binds closer together.  —Friedrich Nietzsche
Laughter is the fireworks of the soul. —Josh Billings
The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up. —Mark Twain
I have yet to find a man or woman, however exalted their station, who did not do better work and put forth greater effort under a spirit of approval than under a spirit of criticism.  —Charles Schwab
The more we share the more we have. —Leonard Nimoy
