James Baldwin, “The Devil Finds Work”
You don’t know what goes on in anyone’s life but your own. And when you mess with one part of a person’s life, you’re not messing with just that part. Unfortunately, you can’t be that precise and selective. When you mess with one part of a person’s life, you’re messing with their entire life. Everything… affects everything.
If we will be quiet and ready enough, we shall find compensation in every disappointment.
