A Quote by Elisabeth Kübler-Ross on light, people, dark, hard, difficulty, difficult, depression, beauty, and shine

People are like stained-glass windows.  They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.

A Quote by Elisabeth Kübler-Ross on compassion, forgiveness, love, peace, people, and self

Unless we can recognize and own the fact that within every one of us there is one who is capable, has the potential, given a certain circumstance, to take food out of a starving babies mouth.  I witnessed that from good people, decent people, loving people.  They got so desperate and they were in such dire straits that they did that.  We will never be enlightened unless we realize and own what our capacity, from the best of the best to the worst of the worst because then we have more empathy, more compassion, more sympathy for others who do things that are hurtful and harmful and we see, given certain situations, I’m capable of that myself.  So, I’m less judgmental.

It is only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up that we will begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it were the only one we had.

Should you shield the canyons from the windstorms, you would never see the beauty of their carvings.

A Quote by Elisabeth Kübler-Ross on brevity, death, eternity, light, peace, people, and stars

Watching a peaceful death of a human being reminds us of a falling star; one of a million lights in a vast sky that flares up for a brief moment only to disappear into the endless night forever.
