The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.

Among other things, youโ€™ll find that youโ€™re not the first person who was ever confused and frightened and even sickened by human behavior. Youโ€™re by no means alone on that score, youโ€™ll be excited and stimulated to know. Many, many men have been just as troubled morally and spiritually as you are right now. Happily, some of them kept records of their troubles. Youโ€™ll learn from themโ€”if you want to. Just as someday, if you have something to offer, someone will learn something from you. Itโ€™s a beautiful reciprocal arrangement. And it isnโ€™t education. Itโ€™s history. Itโ€™s poetry.
