I intend to judge things for myself; to judge wrongly, I think, is more honorable than not to judge at all.
Vulnerability is the only authentic state. Being vulnerable means being open, for wounding, but also for pleasure. Being open to the wounds of life means also being open to the bounty and beauty. Don’t mask or deny your vulnerability: it is your greatest asset. Be vulnerable: quake and shake in your boots with it. the new goodness that is coming to you, in the form of people, situations, and things can only come to you when you are vulnerable, i.e. open.
Sophie Dahl by Annemarieke van Drimmelen, Aubin & Wills
