We diminish ourselves by idealizing another, and they are diminished because we see them as something that they are not.

– Michael J. Formica

Where am I going?
Who is going with me?

Do not invert the order of the questions.
Do not–under any circumstances–invert the order of the questions.

Good. Then we can move on.

– Neale Donald Walsch, Conversations with God – Book I
