I love this line from the old Soviet movie Ballad of a Soldier. (A worthwhile movie by the way.) The main character (the soldier) stowsaway on a freight train and is confronted by a rather ineffectual guard. The soldier argues with him and finally tells him that he is "a piece of shit." The guard replies,
"From your point of view I may be a piece of shit, but from my point of view I'm precious."
I find this quote useful when anyone calls me something uncomlimentary. Inert appropriate word or phrase and it totally throws them off guard and at the same time let's them know they can't get to me.
For I am convinced that neither life nor death...neither the present nor the future nor anything in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39
