Without your wounds

"Without your wounds where would your power be? It is your melancholy that makes your low voice tremble into the hearts of men and women. The very angels themselves cannot persuade the wretched and blundering children on earth as can one human being broken on the wheels of living. In love's service only wounded soldiers can serve."

--Thorton Wilder, The Angel That Troubled The Waters
