People do not seem to realize that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Interestingly, I feel like it’s much easier to see this as a truth when we look at other people. When we encounter a doom-preaching nay-sayer, it’s easy to sum them up as a fusty old pessimist, but we often fail to see our own opinions as a result of our character.
Anyway, just something to think about.
