Stretching Beyond

Iris Soul Palm

Ananke’s palm print with a share and share alike symbol credited to Angel 007 within it. 2010.

Nothing worth doing is completed in our lifetime; therefore, we are saved by hope. Nothing true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history; therefore, we are saved by faith. Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone; therefore, we are saved by love. No virtuous act is quite as virtuous from the standpoint of our friend or foe as from our own; therefore, we are saved by the final form of love, which is forgiveness.

~Reinhold Niebuhr, The Irony of American History (1952)
