From this mornings readings:
“When I have been really wicked and angry, and meant to be nasty, the other party never cared or even didn’t notice. On the other hand, when I have found out afterwards that I had deeply hurt someone, it had nearly always been quite unconscious on my part. (I loathe ‘sensitive” people who are ‘easily hurt’ by the way, don’t you? They are a social pest. Vanity is usually the real trouble)…”
[Good food for personal thought!]
“But it is seldom the present and the actual that is intolerable. Remember, one is given strength to bear what happens to one, but not the 100 and 1 different things that might happen.” [So easy to understand; so hard to live.]
Reading a few letters each day makes for a nice devotional. I highly recommend this book!
