"There is a beautiful transparency to honest disciples who never wear a false face and do not pretend to be anything but who they are." - Brennan Manning
So many things I want to say about this quote, but suffice it to say - life is too short to be anything but real. Be yourself. We don't have time to play the game of sorting through phoniness. Drop the one-sided (or two-faced) friendships. Move on. The coolest people in life are the ones who are just that: people. They don't try to hide it and look like 100% 24/7 edifying saints. What's the point of iron sharpening iron if there's no one around admitting they're dull?
