Grace comes from Owning…

“Grace comes from owning the risks we take in the world by and large immune to our control. If you build your house on a floodplain of the Mississippi River, you may be devastated when the waters overflow, and you may rail at the river. However, when you declare yourself an unwilling victim of a known risk, you have postured yourself as a poor loser in a game you chose to play. Out of a sense of self-righteousness, you will have given away your chance to be effective. Perhaps to gain other people’s sympathy, you will have traded your own peace of mind.”

~ Rosamund Stone Zander and Benjamin Zander   from The Art of Possibility
