Ignorance is avoiding that which stands in front of me out of the misplaced hope that it will put what I’m ignoring behind me. Instead, it’s most certain to drop it on top of me.
Maybe we ought to consider that sometimes the most destructive outcomes in our lives are the ones that we’ve created.
We work hard to believe that our actions really don’t affect others all that much because we want the license to act without thinking all that much.
ALYCE: ‘Gracie’s got brown hair, like me. She’s about the same height, too. People notice her. I think it’s her voice. It’s always louder than you expect and covered with laughter.
I was surprised when she said she didn’t want to work with me. I don’t know Gracie very well, but I remember once in Year 3 she gave me an invitation to her party. She spelt my name right. Everyone always spells it with an ‘i’, even the teachers. Ever since then I thought she would be nice. I never thought she’d look at me like I was nothing.

I am far too often the author of terribly poor decisions. Yet I must rest in the unalterable fact that God says I am far better than what the sum total of those decisions would ever suggest.
Love transcends dimensions of time and space.
