When interviewing refugees, I heard a lot of sad stories. Blue feeling was flowing like a filthy river on one sunny day. So much struggle, so much loss, so much adversity, so many tears. But then you realize, at the end, sadness is only a beginning of something beautiful and meaningful in your life.
Quote on Little Bee by Chris Cleave. Little Bee was shortlisted for the 2008 Costa Award for Best Novel.
Sad words are just another beauty. A sad story means, this storyteller is alive. The next thing you know, something fine will happen to her, something marvelous, and then she will turn around and smile.
