Week words of wisdom

   “Without pain, there would be no suffering, without suffering we would never learn from our mistakes. To make it right, pain and suffering is the key to all windows, without it, there is no way of life.”

                                                                                                                                                          -Angelina Jolie

     This week’s quote is from Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie. Jolie has appeared on many “most beautiful women” lists. Some films Angelina Jolie is most recognized for include Mr. & Mrs. Smith, The Good Shepherd, Wanted, Salt and The Tourist. Jolie was ranked number 33 of 50 smartest people in Hollywood.

To finish out this blog, this quote was chosen because everyone makes mistakes and everyone needs to learn from them. Sometimes pain is hard to deal with but in order to move on everyone must learn to cope and push through the pain. If mistakes are not made, you’re not really living. Mistakes are a part of life and without them no one would learn anything. Appreciate when things don’t go right, because now you will never make that mistake again. Even Angelina Jolie recognizes that mistakes are going to happen and that is just the way of life. Jolie explains how pain and suffering are vital to life also. Pain may seem like a burden, but in the end everyone gets through it and becomes a stronger person than before. Learn from mistakes, more often then not, change is a good thing.
