“You made me laugh at your jokes.
You made me cry at your criticism.
You made me shout at your lies.

Then I noticed how in every case someone else was present,
hearing you without laughter or tears or anger.

I alone reacted.

I see now; you never made me laugh or cry or rage.
I chose to find humor.
I chose to take offense.
I chose to feel scorned.

The truth is, you never had power over me.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Making Wishes

George MacDonald
“Mary was one who possessed power over her own spirit--rare gift, given to none but those who do something toward the taking of it. She was able in no small measure to order her own thoughts. Without any theory of self-rule, she yet ruled her Self. She was not one to slip about in the saddle, or let go the reins for a kick and a plunge or two. There was the thing that should be, and the thing that should not be; the thing that was reasonable, and the thing that was absurd.”
George MacDonald, Mary Marston
