(For those concerned, please know I realize the pronoun in this quote. Take it as he/his. Take it as she/hers. Take it as You/your. Ultimately, words are vehicles for the message - do not be concerned about make of the car; be concerned whether it can take you to your destination. Even then, train yourself to be grateful for the car but not reliant upon it - we should be strong enough to walk.)
