Miscellaneous Thoughts: Thoughts according to Imelda Marcos

13 06 2009

“Why, then, should the cross be a burden? Pain heightens. Sorrow defines joy. Suffering ennobles happiness. And tears are also for laughter. Believe in this, as I have lived it in the most excruciating manner any human being can bear. We are whole, and no line between or across our world can ever fragment us. For we are whole with the universe, and there is nothing to fear if we hold sacred the fundamental fiber of life’s goodness itself. For that is God manifest in all created beings, and man was conceived in his likeness. In all that is good, we need only touch the hand of the Divine, we are one with it.”

— in her book, Circles of Life
