“You are strong because you are imperfect
You are wise because you have doubts”
– so said Winston Churchill’s wife to him, at the beginning of WW II
And so this begs a few questions ….
Are we strong because we can’t be defeated, or because we know how to taste failure ?
Does our wisdom come from what we know, or from what we know we don’t know?
Is our knowledge derived from knowing the answers or in asking the questions ?
Is leadership built on being in front or in people being behind ?
Is there courage in not being afraid or in living with your fear?
Do we achieve victory by defeating the enemy or by the enemy losing ?
Do we find God in our prayers or God finds us in our deeds ?
Do we value life in living or in death ?
In each of these questions, I am pursuing a seeming paradox. And in that paradox I believe we can find the true meaning of life.
