Pearl

“A pearl is a beautiful thing that is produced by an injured life. It is the tear [that results] from the injury of the oyster. The treasure of our being in this world is also produced by an injured life. If we had not been wounded, if we had not been injured, then we will not produce the pearl.”

–Stephan Hoeller

    Thank you for posting this. I have heard this kind of quote from someone else, but can’t remember what it was exactly and who said it. Good and healing thoughts to you.

    I love this quote. I named my dog Pearl after Hester’s daughter in the Scarlet Letter. She was described as the light in the darkness. Thanks for sharing.
