Sunday Quotes: Vulnerability

“To run from vulnerability is to run from the essence of our nature; the attempt to be invulnerable is the vain attempt to be something we are not and most especially, to close off our understanding of the grief of others. More seriously, (in) refusing our vulnerability we refuse the help needed at every turn of our existence and immobilize the essential, tidal and conversational foundations of our identity.”

-David Whyte; Vulnerability
