“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.”

~ Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

 

(Turn! Turn! Turn! Acoustic Cover by Sara Niemietz & W.G. Snuffy Walden)

 

To everything –

turn, turn, turn

There is a season –

turn, turn, turn

And a time to every purpose under heaven

A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep

To everything –

turn, turn, turn

There is a season –

turn, turn, turn

And a time to every purpose under heaven

A time to build up, a time to break down
A time to dance, a time to mourn
A time to cast away stones
A time to gather stones together

To everything –

turn, turn, turn

There is a season –

turn, turn, turn

A time of love, a time of hate
A time of war, a time of peace
A time you may embrace
A time to refrain from embracing

To everything –

turn, turn, turn

There is a season –

turn, turn, turn

A time to gain, a time to lose
A time to rend, a time to sew
A time for love, a time for hate

A time for peace, I swear it’s not too late!
