Inspirational Quotes: Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

“When we face the worst that can happen in any situation, we grow.”

You may not be as familiar with Dr. Kübler-Ross by name, but you will recognize her legacy. From Wiki: Her extensive work with the dying led to the book On Death and Dying in 1969. In this work she proposed the now famous Five Stages of Grief as a pattern of adjustment. These five stages of grief are denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.

Kübler-Ross encouraged the hospice care movement, believing that euthanasia prevents people from completing their ‘unfinished business’.

In 1977 she founded “Shanti Nilaya” (Home of Peace). She intended it as a healing center for the dying and their families. She was also a co-founder of the American Holistic Medical Association.
