A Rose For a Smile

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.

  1. A wonderful quotation dear Eddie .. and it is so true, as we grow though, like the flower the dark earth/times, that makes our roots dig deep for strength against the buffeting of the elements/experiences, we have to endure.
    I am so pleased that I know so many beautiful souls who have reached up to the light with a smile.. As bright as this beautiful Rose.. Who has known its thorns..

    Love and Blessings dear Eddie

  2. I like this quote. I think the key is “have found their way out of the depths”. Without that, beauty may still be waiting in the wings.
