Quote by Alice Walker
Yes, Mother. I can see you are flawed. You have not hidden it. That is your greatest gift to me.
This quote emphasizes the appreciation and understanding the speaker has for their mother's flaws. They acknowledge that their mother does not try to hide her imperfections, and rather sees it as a valuable attribute. It suggests that the mother's vulnerability and authenticity serve as a valuable lesson for the speaker, teaching them to accept and embrace their own flaws. It signifies the impact of a transparent relationship, fostering growth and self-acceptance.
A man with a half volition goes backwards and forwards, and makes no way on the smoothest road a man with a whole volition advances on the roughest, and will reach his purpose, if there be even a little worthiness in it. The man without a purpose is like a ship without a rudder - a waif, a nothing, a no man. Have a purpose in life and having it, throw such strength of mind and muscle into your work as God has given you.
