Sunday Poser- 5/22/22

This is a great question.
I’ve found that each of us bring our own mindsets into everything we do. No one is without pre-decided biases, but many seem to believe that they can operate ‘bias-free’. Those people are just lying to themselves.
Like viewing art, people see what they see through their own hearts and minds. That’s fine. Appreciating quotes is the same for some.
BUT… if the creator of a quote is well known that author’s meaning is easier to decipher. There’s an undeniable ‘flavor’ to the person’s intended meaning. If I am presenting a quote, who said it is the heaviest part.
The author of any quote carries far more clout for me than the words dangling without context. I don’t care to ‘dream up’ meaning when there’s truth to be discovered.
Like catchy headlines absorbed alone, there’s little truth or meaning without knowing what/who inspired them.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts Susan! That’s one way of looking at things. We all do it differently and the reason lies perhaps in the fact that someone I know in my culture/ society/ part of the world may not be someone others are familiar with and vise versa!

      Exactly… that makes the ‘who said it?’ very important. Knowing the culture, it was inspired by, makes all the difference and is worth knowing.

        Very right.

Tell me something good...
