"The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them." ~ Thomas Merton, No Man is an Island
Yet so many miss this point, and instead begin name calling and putting others down. Our society has a hypocritical way about it, and an alarming bullying mentality used to make others feel less than. It's very sad.
