    Most people find quotes that are inspirational. I want to freeform this one.

    A Quote from my soul,

    To judge another is to convict one's own self.
    To Judge someone harshly is to be blinded to one's own shortcomings.
    None are faultless.

    “However, as bad as things were, the worst was yet to come, for germs would kill more people than bullets. By the time that last fever broke and the last quarantine sign came down, the world had lost 3-5% of its population.”

    ― Charles River Editors, The 1918 Spanish Flu Pandemic: The History and Legacy of the World’s Deadliest Influenza Outbreak

    From Ben Hur.

    “Almost At The Moment He Died, I Heard Him Say, "Father, Forgive Them For They Know Not What They Do” To Which Esther Said “Even Then” And Ben-Hur Replied, “Even Then. And I Felt His Voice Take The Sword Out Of My Hand."

    Advent of Midlife

    I am no longer waiting for
    A special occasion;
    I burn the best candles on ordinary days.
    I am no longer waiting for
    The house to be clean;
    I fill it with people who understand that
    Even dust is sacred.
    I am no longer waiting for
    Everyone to understand me;
    It’s just not their task.
    I am no longer waiting for
    The perfect children;
    My children have their own names
    That burn as brightly as any star.
    I am no longer waiting for
    The other shoe to drop;
    It already did, and I survived.
    I am no longer waiting for
    The time to be right;
    The time is always now.
    I am no longer waiting for
    The mate who will complete me;
    I am grateful to be so
    Warmly, tenderly held.
    I am no longer waiting for
    A quiet moment;
    My heart can be stilled whenever it is called.
    I am no longer waiting for
    The world to be at peace;
    I unclench my grasp and
    Breathe peace in and out.
    I am no longer waiting to
    Do something great;
    Being awake to carry my
    Grain of sand is enough.
    I am no longer waiting to
    Be recognized;
    I know that I dance in a holy circle.
    I am no longer waiting for
    Forgiveness.
    I believe, I believe.

    Moral relativism has a reputation for being compassionate, caring and human, but it is an extremely useful philosophy for tyrants.

    "No age has been more prone to confuse the sin with the sinner, not by hating the sinner along with the sin but by loving the sin along with the sinner. We often use "compassion" as an equivalent for moral relativism." ~ Peter Kreeft

    "Moral relativism says morality is relative, not absolute, I want to show moral relativism, in its popular form, is logically incoherent." ~ Peter Kreeft

    Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision.
