Accept yourself: flaws, quirks, talents, secret thoughts, all of it, and experience true liberation.
Only an acceptance of both the flowers and the thorns can bring you peace. Peace, after all, is the fruit of total acceptance.
Patience is not the ability to wait, but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting.
Maturity is also self-awareness, knowing your own strength, your weaknesses and your limitations.
Pastor A.R Bernard
