I love Quotes. I love them because they make me think. What does the quoter mean? Why did he/she write this? Is there a message to get through to the reader/the world? What did YOU initially think when you read it?
Here goes blog quotes #102....
"Promises should not be given lightly unless you want them received lightly."
If someone tells you they will meet you out tonight and don't show, or if they tell you they'll call you tonight, and don't call, how do you feel? When people tell you they will do something and do not follow up on it, what do you think? Does it bother you, or, are you indifferent?
Personally, it is one of my pet peeves. If you say you'll do something.. then I expect you to be true to your word. Not an excuse, not a reason why not, not something came up. Yada,yada,yada. Just do as you say you would do. Simple. Or... next time, just say no, I can't, or, sorry, its not for me.
Funny how many paths lead back to the old famous GOLDEN RULE...... Do unto others. When you promise something, do you deliver none, some, most or all the time?
That's my view....... What say YOU?
