Here is a pearl of wisdom

In honor of Horton hears a Who and a deep belief I share…

those who matter don’t mind.”[/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=“4”]~ Dr. Seuss [/SIZE]

Well put Doc.

That’s a classic self-defense mechanism that allows a person to put a bubble around himself. A person does need to be aware of the effect his words and actions have on others… and his own reputation. The Seuss quote allows a person to create their own made up reality, when the the true one is screaming in their face.

Just my observation.

that was deep…

we all live in our own reality, now don’t we…

While I would agree that everyone has their own reality that doesn’t change the fact that there is a common reality. In the real world one cannot just say whatever they want with impunity. There are consequences to everything we say and do. If we treat others as we would be treated wouldn’t we be better off?!

I agree

however, Mr Suess was not saying “be an a-hole and who cares”

He is saying don’t be full of crap, not be hateful or mean. Express how you feel, not in just negative ways.

Yes, I am well aware of my cutting dialog and it is something I need to improve on, but Suess is right on.
