It’s been a busy day, so this will be a teensy weensy effort… but I remembered this:
You poor idiots who despise me for my way of saying ‘me’
If you were my close friends, you would know how I say ‘thee’.
Sasha Guitry (1885 – 1957)
(The translation is my own – I think I’ve got it substantially correct.)
Perhaps we are like that, sometimes; it is often easier to focus negatively on some mannerism than truly appreciate someone for who, and what, they are. Happily, though, generally, the blogging community is an appreciative one – I have personally felt its warmth!
