Quotable quotes


As we should stand at a certain distance to view objects, so we should also stand at a distance to observe society, each has its proper point of view from which it should be regarded. It is quite right that it should not be looked at too closely, for there is hardly a man person who in all matters allows himself themselves to be seen as he they really is are

  1. Thank you for being inclusive with the strike-outs. Interesting—when I read that last part, my mind immediatly rephrased it to say:
    “for there is hardly a person who in all matters is allowed to be seen as they really is are.”

  2. I’ve found this to be accurate. “We” just don’t like to air our shadow, our dirty laundry. What an interesting world it would be if we could all be honest. Happy Sunday.

    “Hardly?” Hmm… that would imply that there is someone who does.

    Does this mean you should peek in other peoples windows..??? especially bedroom ones and shower rooms ???? Sorry I know it is a serious post and has a good message, but I couldn’t resist the cheap shot? OH hey can I claim to be an observer of society when the police catch me looking in a bedroom or bathroom window… just doing research right ???? Thanks. Hugs

        Thank you. I agree. However some people don’t. And it is too easy to misunderstand what others mean in our world that sometimes without meaning to we hurt others, or we take the fun out of a joke or a time. We can hurt without meaning to , and so it does put a chill on what I sometimes have strike me funny and want to say. Best wishes. Hugs

            Thanks, I hope I am also.. one thing about me if I get upset I don’t mind being called out on it. I freely admit I sometimes are slower coming to understand something than others. Hugs

            Don’t worry about that too. There are others without the courage to admit they could be slow in understand. You are doing well, at least you know yourself. That is one of the greatest commandments
