Hopes and Fears

Here’s a thought worth chewing on. The following quote is from a book I’m reading in a course on pastoral counselling I’m currently taking:

We promise according to our hopes and perform according to our fears.

Francois de la Rochefoucauld (1613-1680)

I think I could spend significant time unpacking those words.
