"as long as we keep running around, anxiously trying to affirm ourselves or be affirmed by others, we remain blind to One who has loved us first, dwells in our heart, and has formed our truest self."
-Turn My Mourning Into Dancing by, Henri J.M. Nouwen

too bad I forget the second part of Nouwen's words in the rest of quote...
"but we can also open our eyes. we can see a new way forward."
