Here are my top 4 favorite quotes about pearls:
“The world is your oyster. It’s up to you to find the pearls.” – Chris Gardner
Whether the pearls that you are looking for symbolize hope, inspiration, or passion, it’s up to you to go out and try to find them. Not only does this mean being open to different experiences, but in addition, searching for them yourself in different ways. Don't forget you can interpret this as finding gems in people too, some people are rare gems, when they come into your life, you would know something special is around you, and when they are absent from your life you will definitely know they are not there, whether you admit it to yourself or not, only you know deep in your heart how people have truly made your life feel, we are all in this world to experience different things and grow, some people are meant to last forever in your life, while some are just passing through, learn to cultivate the habit of letting go of whatever doesn't serve you and let the universe send true gems your way.
