- "Those of us who were taught the cheerful American notion that progress is linear and hierarchical may have had to learn with pain
- that no worthwhile battle can be fought and won only once
- the issues still repeat themselves in different ways and in constantly shifting arenas." -Gloria Steinem
No worthwhile battle can be fought and won only once.
Yet we don't let ourselves learn even that lesson, and too often berate ourselves for not "getting" something the first time through.
Be gentle with yourself.
If you are not, how can you ask others to be?
And how can you expect yourself to be gentle with others?
