saturday's thought




I must learn to love the fool in me--the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries. It alone protects me against that utterly self-controlled, masterful tyrant whom I also harbor and who would rob me of human aliveness, humility, and dignity but for my fool.

That's my favourite quote too...And the quest of my life I suppose. :)

Perfect quote. Our respective fools make us beautiful and vulnerable and interesting. I'm so glad you shared this!

thanks for the quote! I think I needed that one. Sometimes it's so easy to shut off your true self around others, and when you do that you cheat yourself and you end up cheating them too. Life is so much better when you just let loose!

Ah...reading that pretty much sums me up. I actually wouldn't mind the tyrant sometimes....(:

Great quote!
