“We all struggle alone through the ten thousand joys and ten thousand sorrows of our lives.”
Elizabeth Kim, Ten Thousand Sorrows : The Extraordinary Journey of a Korean War Orphan
tags: joy, sorrow

“People said things to me like "They're just animals. They're here for our use." I had a visceral reaction to that phrase, maybe because I was told countless times during my growing-up years that I was "just like an animal." I had suffered much of my life because I was considered less than human. Animals were suffering because they were less than human. And it seemed to me that human didn't have much to be proud of, if they treated other living things with such blind cruelty.”
Elizabeth Kim, Ten Thousand Sorrows : The Extraordinary Journey of a Korean War Orphan

“I want true love in this life, and true contentment and peace. But maybe the only way I can find those things is to let go of the belief that this life is my reality.”
Elizabeth Kim, Ten Thousand Sorrows : The Extraordinary Journey of a Korean War Orphan
