From Strength for the Journey by Peter J. Gomes*

“I will not be defined by my problems, I will not be defined by my neuroses… Where the world tells me to hate I will love, cost what it may; where the world tells me to stand pat I will move on, to wherever I am to go; where the world tells me to be prudent, fearful, and cautious, I will be brave and foolish and courageous, no matter what.”

*I like these passages, but I am neither a real Christian, nor endorsing any of his philosophies. but this is good writing.
