Quote of the Day

“We have all hurt someone tremendously, whether by intent or accident. We have all loved someone tremendously, whether by intent or accident. It is an intrinsic human trait, and a deep responsibility, I think, to be an organ and a blade. But, learning to forgive ourselves and others because we have not chosen wisely is what makes us most human. We make horrible mistakes. It’s how we learn. We breathe love. It’s how we learn. And it is inevitable.”

— Nayyirah Waheed, from kepthoney.com

The organ and the blade. I love that image. I knew nothing about Ms. Waheed before today, but thanks to my friend Vicki P., I do now. And I’m more enriched as a result.

Per Wiki, “Nayyirah Waheed is an African-American poet and author who has published two books of poetry and has been described as ‘perhaps the most famous poet on Instagram.'”
