“The true test of a warrior is how your 'stance' holds up after any 'circumstance'. Meaning, even after the stormiest weather, a true warrior will still reflect the brilliant rays of the magnificent sun through both his or her eyes. You may get hit by sudden lightning or take severe beatings from the cruel wind, but you will always get back up and stand strong on your feet again, soak in the sunlight, and be prepared to get hit by even the most merciless hail - time and time again.”
― Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem
@Invader, that is lovely, and very well said; and certainly something that I can, quite literally relate to. 😉🦸‍♀️🌬❄🌧🌩🌞

My personal favorite quote:
"You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view... until you climb into his skin and walk around in it." - Atticus Finch, To Kill a Mockingbird

"If you are brave enough to leave behind everything familiar and comforting (which can be anything from your house to your bitter old resentments) and set out on a truth-seeking journey (either externally or internally), and if you are truly willing to regard everything that happens to you on that journey as a clue, and if you accept everyone you meet along the way as a teacher, and if you are prepared -- most of all -- to face (and forgive) some very difficult realities about yourself ... then truth will not be withheld from you."

@Lucy I know that woman she's the one wrote a book Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe which later turn into a movie adaptation in 1991 as in Fried Green Tomatoes in which she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Screenplay Adaptation (but lost to Ted Tally who adapted Thomas Harris' The Silence of the Lambs) and she's also appears on TV such as Match Game and The Love Boat and she was dyslexia or reading disorder and if you watch the 1978 movie 'Grease' you might see her as Nurse Wilkins.
