Believing in Yourself

From Permanent Things:


“Believe, amid whatever madness or moral failure, that your life and temperament have some object on earth. Believe that you have something to give the world which cannot otherwise be given.”

G. K. Chesterton, (“Philosophy of Browning,” Robert Browning)

    One thing I love about this quote is that he included temperament – not just our gifts and abilities and our experiences; but the way that we naturally are as individuals has some sort of significance too.
