Longing to be a Paradox?!!!

Strong enough to be weak.
Successful enough to fail.
Busy enough to take time.
Wise enough to say, "I don't know."
Serious enough to laugh.
Rich enough to be poor.
Right enough to say, "I'm wrong."
Compassionate enough to discipline.
Conservative enough to give freely.
Mature enough to be childlike.
Righteous enough to be a sinner.
Important enough to be last.
Courageous enough to fear God.
Planned enough to be spontaneous.
Controlled enough to be flexible.
Free enough to enjoy captivity.
Knowledgeable enough to ask questions.
Loving enough to be angry.
Great enough to be anonymous.
Assured enough to be rejected.
Stable enough to cry.
Victorious enough to lose.
Industrious enough to relax.
Leading enough to serve.
-Philip Brewer
