Help is giving part of yourself to somebody who comes to accept it willing and needs it badly.
So it is that we can seldom help anybody. Either we don't know what part to give or maybe we don't like to give any part of ourselves. Then, more often than not, the part that is needed is not wanted. And even more often, we do not have the part that is needed. It is like the auto-supply shop over town where they always say, 'Sorry, we are just out of that part.'
Tell me, why is it that people who want help do better without it - at least, no worse. Actually, that's what it is, no worse. They take all the help they can get, and are just the same as they always have been.
... but you can love completely without complete understanding.
I am haunted by waters.
Do yourself a favor.
There are some beautiful woodcuts and photographs here.
