Spirituality Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #4

[…] Forgive me, Rough
God, because I walked outside and praised the stars,
And thought I was more important than the stars. (17-19)

Let's say our speaker meant well but life served him a big fat slice of humble pie. Probably didn't taste that great, but once it went down, he came to a new understanding of his spiritual perspective. So that's something.
