I Have Learned Silence From The Talkative,
Tolerance From The Intolerant,
Appreciation From The Ungrateful,
And Kindness From The Unkind.
In anger, I discovered what forgiveness means.
In frustration, I learned to wait a little longer.
In sickness, I learned to appreciate simply living.
I have learned creativity from poverty,
compassion from pain,
joy from sorrow.
In weakness, I found I was stronger than I ever imagined.
Strangly, I Am Grateful For My Teachers and each of my lessons, For They Have Made Me All that I am, and all they will never be...
(part of this is from another quote I found, that got me thinking on all the things I have learned from the things I've experienced in my little world)
