And ever has it been known that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.
The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love and to be greater than our suffering.
We may sooner be brought to love them that hate us, than them that love us more than we would have them do.
I say to people who care for people who are dying, if you really love that person and want to help them, be with them when their end comes close. Sit with them – you don’t even have to talk. You don’t have to do anything but really be there with them.
