Hope, it is the quintessential human delusion, simultaneously the source of your greatest strength and your greatest weakness.

— The Architect, movie quote from The Matrix Reloaded

[Ironically, it is the Architect who is delusional about hope.]  <link>

Our weakness is the key to our salvation, not our strength (talents, etc.). In my weakness, God’s strength is made perfect. In my weakness, I can learn to pray like the Publican, while in my strength, I invariably pray like the Pharisee. Blessed are the meek.
