Ursula K. Le Guin quote:

 

“He begins to take responsibility for his acts and feelings. And with it he often shoulders a terrible load of guilt. He sees his shadow as much blacker, more wholly evil, than it is. The only way for a youngster to get past that paralyzing self-blame and self-disgust of this stage is to really look at that shadow, to face it, warts and fangs and pimples and claws and all –to accept it as himself– as part of himself. The ugliest part, but not the weakest. For the shadow is the guide. … The guide of the journey to self-knowledge, to adulthood, to the light.” -Ursula K. Le Guin
