How to be beautiful

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.

Thanks to Martine Brennan for making this her Facebook status. I think it is one of the most beautiful and truest staments I have ever heard, don’t you agree?
