The Mysteries of Life

May the Lord give you wings to fly…

You got to lose yourself before you can find yourself.

You must fall before you discover that you can fly.

You have to say goodbye before you can say hello.

Before the opportunity knocks, you must taste the bitterness of failure.

If you’ve never experienced sorrow, then the true meaning of joy will be lost to you.

If you’ve never took the patience to wait, then, neither the fruit of faith waited for you.

You cannot feel the pain of others until you yourself go through the pain.

You cannot truly love until you’ve had to let go of love.

And you cannot live until you have died to yourself.
