Paul Tournier on Crossing the Threshold Into Maturity

Quote for the Day:

"...there are moments in a man's life which may be decisive turning points. Moments of crisis, in which he may be tempted to run away from himself, to add one more defeat to his life in order to hide other defeats; or else he may, on the contrary, begin to be really honest with himself, have the courage to make a frank reckoning of his faults, to accept their consequences, and to mend them in order to start again with an entirely new life." 
Paul Tournier, in his book, The Healing of Persons

"...only before God can we get rid of the formidable barriers which prevent a man from speaking frankly about his shortcomings..." Paul Tournier
