To sin and feel nothing is a sign of having no faith.
To sin and feel guilty is a sign of weak faith.
To feel guilty before you commit a sin and not commit the sin is a sign of strong faith.
I remember when I was younger and I wanted to be beautiful; now I’m older and I want to be intelligent. I want to burn hearts with brilliance and engulf souls with compassion. I want to be loved for my thoughts and nothing else.
When I’m old and gray, I want to have a house by the sea. And paint. With a lot of wonderful chums, good music, and booze around. And a damn good kitchen to cook in.
