This words were posted by a friend of mine in facebook and I really liked this poem, so I have to share it with you as well:

People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.
Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

I really like this simile. So I was searching the internet for the autor who turned out to be very interesting as well. Elisabeth was a Swiss American psychiatrist and the autor of many books. She became only 78 years old and her most popular book "On Death and Dying (1969)" is about her near-death studies she have done during her time at the University of Chicago's Pritzker School of Medicine. In her book, she proposed the now famous Five Stages of Grief. These five stages of grief are denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.Well, I've heard many times of this stages but never knew from whom they originated. So as a friend would say: "again what learned" :)
