Michael J Fox

I've been reading "The Adventures of an Incurable Optimist" the past few days. Great book. It's taught me worlds about Parkinson's Disease. Today I read a quote that really touched me, and even though Fox is clear that he does not believe in Jesus or Christianity or religion at all, I want to believe that someday he will re-read his own words and see them in a different light:

"We do so much to protect ourselves from the truth, but what I have learned and drawn strength and comfort from, especially over the last 17 years or so, is that the truth protects us from ourselves. That is, of course, if we can recognize it and trust it."

Love it.
