My Complexity

"We are all complex. I wish I were made of just one self — consistent, wise and loving — a self I should never wish to get rid of at any time or place, which would move graciously through my autobiography ‘trailing clouds of glory.’ … It is no use trying to reconcile the multitude of egos that compose me. I cannot fathom them myself. I ask myself questions that I cannot answer. I find my heart aching when I expected to find it rejoicing; tears flow from my eyes when my lips were formed to smile. I preach love, brotherhood and peace, but I am conscious of antagonisms, and lo! I find myself brandishing a sword and making ready for battle."

- Helen Keller


"Our listening creates a sanctuary for the homeless parts within another person."
