  • (Quote) “Finding beauty in a broken world is creating beauty in the world we find.​”​​ ​–Terry Tempest Williams
  • (Book) Viktor Frankl Man’s Search for Meaning
  • (Book) Terry Tempest Williams Finding Beauty In A Broken World
  • “The work of the mature person is to carry grief in one hand and gratitude in the other and to be stretched large by them. How much sorrow can I hold? That’s how much gratitude I can give. If I carry only grief, I’ll bend toward cynicism and despair. If I have only gratitude, I’ll become saccharine and won’t develop much compassion for other people’s suffering. Grief keeps the heart fluid and soft, which helps make compassion possible.” –Francis Weller
