I stood on the balcony dark with mourning...
hoping the earth would spread its wings
in my uninhabited love.

A Quote by Elizabeth Kubler Ross on beautiful, defeat, struggle, suffering, loss, appreciation, sensitivity, compassion, life, and gentleness

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.

A Quote by Emily Dickinson on loss and moon


Each that we lose takes a part of us;
   A crescent still abides,
Which like the moon, some turbid night,
   Is summoned by the tides.
