"...all endings are also beginnings. We just don't know it at the time"
"People think of heaven as a paradise garden, a place where they can float on clouds and laze in rivers and mountains. But scenery without solace is meaningless.” “This is the greatest gift God can give you: to understand what happened in your life. To have it explained. It is the peace you have been searching for."
"The human spirit knows, deep down, that all lives intersect. That death doesn’t just take someone, it misses someone else, and in the small distance between being taken and being missed, lives are changed."
"No life is a waste. The only time we waste is the time we spend thinking we are alone."
"Sacrifice, you made one. I made one. We all make them. But you are angry over yours. You kept thinking about what you lost… You didn’t get it. Sacrifice is a part of life. It’s supposed to be. It’s not something you regret. It’s something to aspire to. Little sacrifices. Big sacrifices. A mother works so her son can go to school. A daughter moves home to care of her sick father."
"Parents rarely let go of their children, so children let go of them. They move away. The moments that used to define them—a mother’s approval, a father’s nod—are covered by moments of their own accomplishments. It is not until much later, as the skin sags and the heart weakens, that children understand; their stories, and all their accomplishments, sit atop the stories of their mothers and fathers, stones upon stones, beneath the waters of their lives."
"Holding anger is a poison. It eats you from the inside. We think that hating is a weapon that attacks the person who harmed us. But hatred is a curved blade. And the harm we do, we do to ourselves."
"People say they “find” love, as if it were an object hidden by a rock. But love takes many forms, and it is never the same for any man and woman. What people find then is a certain love."
"Life has to end. Love doesn't."
Those were some of my favorite quotes from the book "The five people you meet in heaven.", alongside of what I wore last Sunday when I went to see Captain America. I wore a Forever 21 skirt and blazer, with a top I made a year ago using this pattern.
Esas fueron unas de mis citas favoritas del libro "The five people you meet in heaven.", junto con lo que use el domingo pasado cuando fui a ver Captain America. Yo me puse una falda y un blazer de Forever 21, con una camisa que hice el año pasado usando este patron.
