463: Overheard


There is danger that we lose sight of what our friend is absolutely, while considering what she is to us alone.
Henry David Thoreau

Consider who a person is in their entirety: who she is to the public, to her friends, to her family, who she strives to be, who she struggles being, who she delights in being. Consider all of this instead of only considering who she is to you. She is not just your mother or wife or sister…her life is much more complicated and affects so many more lives.
