You must be able to stand before the entire world and make no excuse for yourself. When you can do that, you’re coming from a position of unconditional love. … Robert Anthony (writer) {Makes you think about the verse in the Bible to love your neighbor as yourself, doesn’t it? None of us are perfect.}
