The Human Race


Aren’t we beautiful?

this quote should probably go with another image, but I found it and liked it so much that I had to include it today.

Over the years I have developed a picture of what a human being living humanely is like. She is a person who understand, values and develops her body, finding it beautiful and useful; a person who is real and is willing to take risks, to be creative, to manifest competence, to change when the situation calls for it, and to find ways to accommodate to what is new and different, keeping that part of the old that is still useful and discarding what is not. — Virginia Satir

    Thank you everyone for the feedback. I made this collage for the children in my class at school. It was fun to make and is fun to look at.
    Clara, I too wonder about the individuals life stories.
    What are their hopes and dreams,what is their daily life like, and if they are happy over all with their lives?

    I took a Family therapy class when I went to school, and wrote a paper based on some of Virginia Satir’s work. She knows her stuff. I’m glad everyone liked her quote.
