“You are not a mistake. You are not a problem to be solved. But you won’t discover this until you are willing to stop banging your head against the wall of shaming and caging and fearing yourself.” — Geneen Roth.
“A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.”
“It is better to be hated for what you are than loved for what you are not.”
“It isn’t that they can’t see the solution. It’s that they can’t see the problem.”
—G. K. Chesterton.
“When truth is replaced by silence,the silence is a lie.”
“Telling the truth is the basis of all classic art.”
—Margery Allingham, writer.
“It is in the grandeur of Eros that the seeds of danger are concealed…For Eros, speaking with that very grandeur and displaying that very transcendence of self, may urge to evil as well as to good…The love which leads to cruel and perjured unions, even to suicide-pacts and murder, is not likely to be wandering lust or idle sentiment. It may well be Eros in all his splendour: heart-breakingly sincere; ready for every sacrifice except renunciation.”
— C. S. Lewis, The Four Loves.
