“Slowly we learn that we are all broken, all less than perfect, and that God loves us, each one, wonderfully even so. Slowly we learn that the real love for one another we crave is not the ideal love of my personal facade for your facade, but the imperfect intent to love that my flawed self can offer to the real you.” 

Lloyd Lee Wilson, 2001

“Boris laughed, ‘And you love her yes. but not too much.’
‘Why do you say that?’
‘Because you are not mad, or wild, or grieving! You are not roaring out to choke her with your own bare hands! Which means your soul is not too mixed up with hers. And that is good. Here is my experience. Stay away from the ones you love too much. Those are the ones who will kill you.'”

– Donna Tartt, The Goldfinch

“God keeps giving, forgiving, and inviting us back. My friend Tom says this is a scandal and that God has no common sense. God doesn’t say: ‘I have had it this time. You have taken this course four times and you flunked again. What a joke.’ We get to keep starting over. Lives change, sometimes quickly, but usually slowly.”

– Anne Lamott, Help, Thanks, Wow

“With no children of her own, she’s destined to remain a daughter.”

“We have art in order not to die from the truth.”

– Nietzsche

“I prayed for twenty years but received no answer until I prayed with my legs.”

– Frederick Douglass, Escaped Slave
