“Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us.”
David Richo

“Trust in someone means that we no longer have to protect ourselves. We believe we will not be hurt or harmed by the other, at least not deliberately. We trust his or her good intentions, though we know we might be hurt by the way circumstances play out between us. We might say that hurt happens; it’s a given of life. Harm is inflicted; it’s a choice some people make.”
David Richo

“Humility means accepting reality with no attempt to outsmart it.”
David Richo, The Five Things We Cannot Change: And the Happiness We Find by Embracing Them
