Elisabeth Kübler-Ross – The most beautiful people we have known

Share this quote:
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 compassions, gentleness, and a deep loving concern.  Beautiful people do not just happen.
