Beautiful People

“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.”

~ Elizabeth Kabler-Ross

Freedom

“I was young you see. It did not concern me that my neighbor’s father was organizing a riot, or that he was all prepared to start a bloody crisis.

All I truly cared about was the art form of play and the freedom of running around in my underwear. Just letting everything loose.

For I had been tempted many times to take off my clothes and join the local kids my age who daily were free of clothing, and restrictions. They were free to roam and run.”
