Splashing around in books.
I’ve managed to get through some rough times in my life with the help of Elisabeth Kübler-Ross. (And I like the way she spells her first name.)However, I don’t consider myself a beautiful person for having done so although I know plenty of people who are.
I've read several of Kubler-Ross's books, and I really like her.Most of Kubler-Rossism deals with the grief of death, but when I read this quote I think of broken-heartedness in other ways, too. There have been times when I have spoken with people who I [secretly] think of as a bit shallow, and I've asked them if they have ever had their heart broken. Most often my amateur psychological assessment of them is confirmed as they say, "No, not really."
@ Beth:Elisabeth is the German spelling.@ Cipriano:Amen! ;-)
I've often been guilty of using the phrase "too happy to be very smart or very deep." I suppose we all stereotype one way or the other.
