Warriors of light are not perfect.

I do not read a lot of fiction, but Paulo Coehlo is one author I do read. He has a way with words that is poetic, even in prose. This quote reminded me of Elisabeth’s poem Imperfection where I find perfection in my imperfection.

“Warriors of light are not perfect.
Their beauty lies in accepting this fact
and still desiring to grow and to learn.”

~ Paulo Coelho

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and taught for 15 years in a wonderful hybrid school. My dissertation topic and research were how certain teachers experience becoming who teachers. In teaching and leanring, I am a boundary-crosser who understands moving ahead is a leap of faith. Teaching is a calling and vocation to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what calls me next. I am an educator, phenomenologist, scholar, boundary-crosser, published poet, author, parent, grandparent, and spouse.

  2. Warriors learn from everything…they never waste an opportunity, that’s what keeps them fighting and alive. Great quote.
