"Every bad thing that has ever happened to me has taught me compassion"
Love that quote. Think I would have maybe got something from Tolstoy? Hah. That little gem just came from Ellen while on the Oprah show, which I heard while laying on my couch, looking at all the piles of crap on my floor that I could be removing instead of laying around watching TV. But then I wouldn't have heard that little nugget.
Compassion rocks. Wish I had more of it. Wish I could get it without having to go through hard things.
Oh and I also wish I had a maid.
