Weakness

“Every weakness contains within itself a strength.”
Japanese author Shusaku Endo  spent a lot of time around doctors and nurses. Before publishing his award-winning work of historical fiction, Silence, he spent the greater part of three years in hospitals—in Japan and France—recovering from pleurisy.

“The earth is not just for the clever and the strong.” Endo

Our life is a mix. There is no benefit to pretending to be free of all weakness. That would not be human.

It would be lonely.
