Strength and fragility

All people carry strength and fragility, which many hold in disproportion:
To abjure your strength is to dwell in false smallness.
To abjure your weakness is to dwell in delusions of self-God.
Both are false.

Blessed are they who claim both their weakness and their strength –
How rare it is for humans to claim their full humanity!
When they do, they cast a million lights!
