” When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.”
“ Cuando se cierra una puerta de la felicidad, se abre otra; pero a menudo miramos tanto tiempo la puerta cerrada que no vemos la que se nos ha abierto.” –
– Helen Keller
