1. You have to know how to accept rejection and reject acceptance. (Ray Bradbury)
2. Never look for justice in this world, but never cease to give it. (Oswald Chambers)
I'm wrestling with these right now.
I'm mainly reconciling the idea that it's good to make a good impression and be well-liked, with the idea that my principles and beliefs should stand firm no matter what. There is also the factor of being sensitive to others to consider.
I'm also dwelling on the fact that I currently reside in a society that is unjust, and yet my life is held to a higher standard, and I must operate justly within the confines of an unjust system.
