Along with the idea of romantic love, she was introduced to another- physical beauty. Probably the most destructive ideas in the history of human thought. Both originated in envy, thrived in insecurity, and ended in disillusion. In equating physical beauty with virtue, she stripped her mind, bound it, and collected self-contempt by the heap. She forgot lust and simple caring for. She regarded love as possessive mating, and romance as the goal of the spirit. It would be for her a wellspring from which she would draw the most destructive emotions, deceiving the lover and seeking to imprison the beloved, curtailing freedom in every way.
Toni Morrison

Knowledge of one's identity, one's self, community, nation, religion, and God is the true meaning of resurrection, while ignorance of it signifies hell.

Prayer has been something that was always in my life. But I found myself only praying when I needed or wanted something. My mom always reminded me to pray every day because God wakes you up every day...and God is everything, without Him, what would there be?
