“Nobody escapes being wounded. We all are wounded people, whether physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually.  The main question is not, ‘How can we hide our wounds?’ so we don’t have to be embarrassed, but, ‘How can we put our woundedness into the service of others?’  When our wounds cease to be a source of shame, and become a source of healing, we have become wounded healers.”

Henri Nouwen

“The great illusion of leadership is to think that man can be led out of the desert by someone who has never been there.”
