random musings 20161207

i’m not even serious half the time;
and i seldom seriously fool around.
“just because i feel like it,”
grows more and more a hateful sound.

personality quizzes tend to ask if the quiz-taker favours justice or mercy, as if they belong on opposite sides.

why?

i think of mercy as a higher value,

but that does not mean i hold no regard for justice

(in fact, my aspiration for justice essentially decided my vocation).

justice and mercy are not mutually exclusive.

it is only when justice is meted out that mercy has any application at all.

when the greatest act of kindness you can offer is to tell someone to

“lose hope.”
