Another voice of Elijah

“We, the culture of the self-made man, tend not to talk about vulnerability, as if it’s something that can be outsmarted. It can’t. Since the dawn of man, each and every one of us has been only one crushed vertebrae, one unrequited love, one dark alley, one mottled cell, one blown megadeal away from being less than we had planned. And it is only in the recognition of that common weakness that we begin to find our way home.” (from Elijah & the SAT, p. 174)Image
