“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.”
