Image Quotes about Other People




Kenneth Boulding  - [Some of this, to be sure, feeds our appetite for the misfortune of others. We like to see other people stumble and fall. Slapstick, and for that matter a lot of comedy, depends on the principle. But loss can also open us up to things that winning, in its glandular, stimulating way, may not. It makes our own disappointments less stinging and stigmatizing. It invites humility, modesty, introspection and change.] Disappointment forces a learning process of some kind upon us, ... success does not.
