“Delicious Ambiguity”


“Tell me what company you keep, and I’ll tell you what you are.”      (Miguel de Cervantes)


“If others tell us something we make assumptions, and if they don’t tell us something we make assumptions to fulfill our need to know and to replace the need to communicate.   Even if we hear something and we don’t understand we make assumptions about what it means and then believe the assumptions.   We make all sorts of assumptions because we don’t have the courage to ask questions.”       (Miguel Ruiz,The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom)


“I have no right, by anything I do or say, to demean a human being in his own eyes. What matters is not what I think of him; it is what he thinks of himself.  To undermine a man’s self-respect is a sin.”      (Antoine de Saint-Exupery)


“I always wanted a happy ending …   Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle and end.   Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it without knowing what’s going to happen next.   Delicious ambiguity.”      (Gilda Radner)
