A mature person is one who does not think only in absolutes, who is able to be objective even when deeply stirred emotionally, who has learned that there is both good and bad in all people and in all things, and who walks humbly and deals charitably with the circumstances of life, knowing that in this world no one is all knowing and therefore all of us need both love and charity.
It’s one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself, to forgive. Forgive everybody.
“If the path before you is clear, you’re probably on someone else’s.”

“The Opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference.”
If I knew that today would be the last time I’d see you,
I would hug you tight and pray the Lord be the keeper of your soul.
If I knew that this would be the last time you pass through this door,
I’d embrace you, kiss you, and call you back for one more.
If I knew that this would be the last time I would hear your voice,
I’d take hold of each word to be able to hear it over and over again.
If I knew this is the last time I see you,
I’d tell you I love you, and would not just assume foolishly you know it already.
Hat tip: Sherilee. Great find!
Honest questions are all inquiry and no advocacy.
The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled.
Prejudice, not being founded on reason, cannot be removed by argument.
Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t—you’re right.
