We’ve all had experiences that defy words. A beautiful sunset, the birth of a child, or the intense sadness at the death of a loved one can all leave us speechless. A nation in the midst of a war feels unspeakable collective grief in response to unimaginable shocks and horrors. For those times, we are fortunate to have the wisdom of the ages found in the famous words of those who have been through it all. While the people who spoke them are long gone, their words live on and speak to us in a way that can inspire, console, and educate. We are grateful for these insights and eager to share them.
