Suffering


"Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars."

~Khalil Gibran

ah yes, one of life's great truths, but one of the most difficult to master! Happy New Year to you, dear Jennifer, and much love as you step out into the possibilities of 2010!!

Hey, did you know it's Khalil Gibran's birthday today? (Maybe that's why you posted this). Anyway, I was just reading that in my Awe-manac (I talked about this book on my blog last week.) Here is another quote from him: "poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder with a dash of the dictionary" and one more, "sadness is but a wall between two gardens". Good stuff!!
