People are all broken
I like you, but... that's bullshit. Damaging bullshit, too.
Hmm, how come? Everybody's made mistakes, everybody's hurt and been hurt.

Or basically what she said just above me, lol. Especially the "not that we're all bad."
To me it still smacks of people as sinners or fallen from some perfect form in short Christian guilt. Having limitations such as a disability, or less facility at math or languages, or having made some mistake to be rectified does not make one broken or fallen in some fashion.
We are quicksilver, a fleeting shadow, a distant sound... our home has no boundaries beyond which we cannot pass. We live in music, in a flash of color... we live on the wind and in the sparkle of a star! Endora, Bewitched
