I must learn to love the fool in me (Theodore Rubin)

I must learn to love the fool in me—the one who feels too much, talks too
much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks
self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks
promises, laughs and cries. It alone protects me against that utterly
self-controlled, masterful tyrant whom I also harbor and who would rob me of
human aliveness, humility and dignity but for my fool. -Theodore Rubin
