I learned from my mistakes; I was able to accept the things that were my fault and to be able to grow from that. You have to be able to see growth from your experiences, and I've done that.
Humanity is a crazy contradiction. I accept us for who we are. We're not that great. Every time we take a step forward we go back to the same primitive behavior. We're meant to be this way. It's not our fault, it's just who we are.
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
A blessed thing it is for any man or woman to have a friend, one human soul whom we can trust utterly, who knows the best and worst of us, and who loves us in spite of all our faults.
