Your presence is a moral poison that would contaminate the most virtuous.
Your presence is a miracle.
Your presence in this house is almost as painful and enormous as your absence.
Your presence here is is only a matter of conducting an experiment in limits, reminding yourself of what you aren't.
Your impact on the world is significant whether or not you are aware of it, and even whether or not you desire it.
Your brokenness is not useless. God can always use your pain to rebuild a stronger you.
Yours, I realize, is the first real card on the table. I admire this. Mine had been just a joker.
Yours is the light by which my spirit's born: yours is the darkness of my soul's return --you are my sun, my moon, and all my stars.
Yours is the light by which my spirit's born: -- you are my sun, my moon, and all my stars.
Yours is the energy that makes your world. There are no limitations to the self except those you believe in.
Yours is a race whose imagination is limited to its own small appetites. Greed, lust, envy -- these are the motivating forces of humankind. What redeems you is that in every man and woman there is a seed that can grow to encompass love, joy and compassion. But this seed is never allowed to prosper in fertile ground. It struggles for life among the rocks of your human soul.
Your'e seeing me develop, not only as a filmmaker if you've seen my earlier films, but you're seeing me kind of learn how to be a human, how my philosophy has evolved.
Your yes means nothing if you can't say no.
Your writing voice is the deepest possible reflection of who you are. The job of your voice is not to seduce or flatter or make well-shaped sentences. In your voice, your readers should be able to hear the contents of your mind, your heart, your soul.
Your writers write these pieces about meaningless startups, meaningless apps and meaningless companies.
Your writer, your scientist, your chief official, all have lost the power to revive the early illusion concerning fame and high place. Their beauty and delight is like the mirage in the heavens, only plain to the eye outside; within is nothing.
Your wrinkles either show that you're nasty, cranky, and senile, or that you're always smiling.
Your worst sin is that you have destroyed and betrayed yourself for nothing.
Your worst parts of your life, the things that you're ashamed of will become your strongest assets in a very quick amount of time. And the implication in that is your story is all that you have so passing it on to someone else who is struggling behind you coming up the ladder helps them. And so in the spirit of service in recovery we often talk about the power of our own stories to connect with other people and show them that they too can get well. I have found that not only is that true in the recovery world, but it is true in the social world in the social milieu in which I exist.
