QUOTES with Double or Triple meanings?

I always get a kick out of reading quotes that can be interpreted in several different ways. One of the fascinating things about the human being is how 4 people could look at the exact same thing and see 4 different scenerios.

At the S-T Think Tank, I will periodically find a quote that is both interesting AND has the versatility of being interpreted different from several people.

Without further adieu... here's one for the noggin:

"If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home and examine your conscience." -Woodrow Wilson-

I read that as; always carry treats with you. Kidding.I read it as dogs are incredibly loving creatures, yet have a sixth, seventh and even eighth sense at times. A dog that turns you away must sense a good reason not to come to you.


Thats my view.
WHAT SAY YOU on the interpretation of the quote?

Just how trustworthy are you, are you capable of kindness and care.

Hi Tim,
Isn't it a sign of aggression to a dog for someone to look him in the face? So if he turns away, does that mean he succumbs to your aggression? I think I agree with you that if even an all-loving dog won't come to you, maybe you should consider that you may be projecting something you're not aware of.
