Pearl S. Buck Quotations

-A good marriage is one which allows for change and growth in the individuals and in the way they express their love.

-There are many ways of breaking a heart. Stories were full of hearts broken by love, but what really broke a heart was taking away its dream – whatever that dream might be.

-The secret of joy in work is contained in one word – excellence. To know how to do something well is to enjoy it.

-Every great mistake has a halfway moment, a split second when it can be recalled and perhaps remedied.

-Some are kissing mothers and some are scolding mothers, but it is love just the same.

-There is an alchemy in sorrow. It can be transmuted into wisdom, which, if it does not bring joy, can yet bring happiness.
