The Innocent Man
By John Grisham
This is a nonfiction story by John Grisham. Upon reading a lengthy obituary of Ron Williamson, a former death row inmate, John Grisham was fascinated with Ron’s story. The story also got my curiosity going.

“Jesus is offering you a lifeboat, but you would rather swim. Are you tired of swimming yet?”
Jill Ammon Vanderwood

“You can't gain control of your children by losing control of yourself”
Jill Ammon Vanderwood

“The tipping point is that magic moment when an idea, trend, or social behavior crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire.”
Malcolm Gladwell, The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of "A Course in Miracles"

“Let your speach be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.”
― Colossians 3: verse 6

“The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it.”
Molière

“I am only one. But still, I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do.”
Edward Everett
