"Our inability to love one another is humankind’s greatest tragedy.
Why can’t people live up to their moral goodness? It’s better to share.
It’s more pleasant to be kind. Maybe not in the moment, but immediately after.
It’s exhausting to despair. Love replenishes itself, day after day.
It’s easy to love, it’s hard to refuse. Surprises are always coming.
Adversity is better met by good cheer and a placid spirit.
Generosity makes us free. Sacrifice lifts the soul.
For the happy woman there is no terror in the night.
Lass meine Schmerzen nicht verloren sein. Let my sorrow and my pain not be in vain. Don’t kill yourself. Work. Each evening come home to me. Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life.
I love that. Surely they shall. Surely. Surely…Don’t kill yourself. Work. Each evening come home to me."
Dymphna, Tiny Kushner (via thebookworm)
