"The days of our lives, for all of us, are numbered," she wrote. "We know that. And yes, there are certainly times when we aren't able to muster as much strength and patience as we would like. It's called being human. But I have found that in the simple act of living with hope, and in the daily effort to have a positive impact in the world, the days I do have are made all the more meaningful and precious. And for that I am grateful."

"In her life, Elizabeth Edwards knew tragedy and pain," President Barack Obama said in a statement. "Many others would have turned inward; many others in the face of such adversity would have given up. But through all that she endured, Elizabeth revealed a kind of fortitude and grace that will long remain a source of inspiration."

May we find some peace and hope in her memory and these quotes to her resilience.

Elizabeth Edwards was and is an inspiration. The beauty of her
soul shined brightly through the windows of her eyes! Her strength and grace were prime examples of Godly stature. IMO!

She did not want to define her life by her tragedies -- her battle was to live a great life. Brave woman. Hope I can find the strength to emulate her spirit.

Thanks for starting a thread about Elizabeth Edwards here.

Of course I never knew her, but like all of you who have written about her here, she was a woman whose spirit resonated with me, and I was so saddened to hear of her death.

The world will miss her!

Rest in peace, Elizabeth!

So very sad and seems unfair she had to have Cancer and be married to a slimeball cheater too.

She kept him close; it seems she must've still loved him.

I just read that Fred Phelps is planning on demonstrating at her funeral - I guess harassing soldiers' families isn't enough.

That's sad. I'd like to think her funeral could be free of protesters.

Just think if those protesters put all that energy to good use,
what a positive contribution they could make to society!
