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.
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.
