Beautiful people do not just happen

(This is not a poem, I know, but my love of poetry stems from my love of strong words strung together to create powerful lines and phrases. Quotes, now and then, suit.)

"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."

Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
