[Toddlers Were Running The Place Like Some Miniature Version Of Lord Of The Flies, Complete With Weapons Made From Blocks And Tinker Toys. One Of Them Came At Me, Charging My Knees And The Pink Pod That Held My Precious Baby. I Screamed And Made A Run For The Front Door, Flip-flops Sticking To Squelchy Dried Puddles Of Juice. I Let Out A Relieved Sigh When We Were Outside Breathing Fresh Air. The Near-deafening Roar Of The Highway Was A Lark Song Compared To The Screeching We'd Just Escaped.]

Quotes About Guilt In Maus

"The only path I am asked to monitor is my own. I resist all temptation today to judge how I think others should behave. I cannot know the deeper forces at work within anyones heart. My deliverance comes from accepting all people, not judging or controlling them. I pray that when I am tempted to speak or act without charity, that Gods spirit will correct my thoughts. I pray to be an instrument of love by which people are reminded of their innocence, not an instrument of blame that reminds them of their guilt. I do this for my own sake, that I too might be released from feelings of guilt that would otherwise bind me. It is not my job to monitor anyones journey, to know whats right or wrong for others, or to try to control their behavior. My salvation lies in deep acceptance of people exactly as they are, that I might know the inner peace that such acceptance brings. Amen." - Author: Marianne Williamson
