Quotations are fun, engaging, educational, and sometimes communicate a particular concept perfectly without having to think up something pithy myself. Some days are pithy days, some days just aren’t.
I’ve been thinking a lot about wisdom lately. The idea of adding a quotation to what I’d already written about wisdom in a new book led me to the Brainy Quotes website to select just the right one. I found a quote that seamlessly knitted my thoughts with one of Aldous Huxley’s.
To me, quotes are like a buffet of my favorite foods. As I browsed the offering today I found a great comment by Confucius that applies perfectly to horse training – so I shared it on social media. As I continued to taste the quote fare I found this somewhat disturbing one. It struck me as being just a bit off – like a mayonnaise based salad left under the buffet lights a bit too long.
