Simone Weil

"Contradiction is the criterion of reality."

French Philosopher/Writer
1909 - 1943

For me, I am a walking, talking contradiction and my experience is that so are most of the people whom I have met in my life.  Have you ever said one thing and done another? Do you tell people that you love them and yet you often hurt them?  Do you believe in peace and love and yet find yourself becoming angry at the behavior of others?  Do you teach one thing and do another?  Life is full of contradictions.  And that is okay.  Contradictions make us human.  All our heroes have clay feet.  And we should love them anyway.  What are the contradictions in your life?  What makes you human?
