Every good thing seems wasted on you- pot, the Bible, engagement, tolerance, humor- freedom."Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? there is more hope of a fool than of him" (Proverbs 26: 12). I think that sums up Anderson pretty well.
If you offer nothing in the way of success- you
leave the world no choice but to deal with you according failures. You couldn't find this lesson is scripture?
