A Friend or My Shadow

Standard

I am always willing to point out my faults, my shortcomings and my failures. But when someone else points out my faults, my shortcomings and my failures – well, that is a different matter altogether.

Friendship is about candid and open debate.  That’s what makes it exciting and moving forward….

“I don’t need a friend who changes when I change and who nods when I nod; my shadow does that much better.
Plutarch

The things one wants to know…

Standard

“I wish life was not so short, he thought. Languages take such a time, and so do all the things one wants to know about.”
J. R. R. Tolkien

Knowledge is increasing exponentially – everyone agrees.  Whether wisdom is growing at the same rate, is another matter altogether.

We have so much to learn in so little time. It makes life both exciting and frustrating. Perhaps this dynamic duo may be what keeps us moving forward. We have no time for regrets….
