Aeschylus and the Grace of God
Aeschylus said,

"Even in our sleep, pain which cannot forget
falls drop by drop upon the heart, until,
in our own despair,
against our will,
comes wisdom through the awful grace of God."

Never would I have thought to combine the word "awful" with the grace of God.

Until now.

Learning to detach from people you love can be the awful grace of God. And, yes, it comes only with hard earned wisdom.
