The whole and its parts

The whole & its parts

Using quotes

Quotes are an interesting phenomenon. They are what someone said one day, an expression of his wisdom as it was accessible to him when he shared it.

They spread because someone else found that saying interesting and useful.

What they meant and how they have been understood may still be entirely different.

The only way to understand the exact same thing is to be the person who says it and consistently stay with the context in which that saying is true.

When we learn and when the world around us changes, we’ll often see where a saying continues to apply and where it doesn’t fully align with our initial idea anymore.
