We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.
The notion has application for virtually everyone. I thought about it last night tweeting out the happenings at two public meetings where Slabbed relied on the attendees in order to be three places at once. That said, in an alternate world where I was a lawyer instead of an accountant, I’d carry that quote with me and tape it to my notes before every jury trial.
Abraham Lincoln is very quotable too so instead of the post I could put up today I’ll share a quote that is also applicable:
Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.
