Speak to Us of Joy and Sorrow

Speak to Us of Joy and Sorrow
Wake Up to Live with Desiree Leigh

Then a woman said,
Speak to us of Joy and Sorrow.

And he answered:
Your joy is your sorrow unmasked.

And the selfsame well from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled with your tears.
And how else can it be?

The deeper that sorrow carves into your being,

the more joy you can contain.

Is not the cup that holds your wine
the
very cup that was burned in the potter's oven?

~Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet



Wake Up to Live with Desiree Leigh
