In separateness lies the world's great misery, in compassion lies the world's true strength.
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
The only way out of the labyrinth of suffering is to forgive.

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.

- Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
