Quote #120, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

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 quote #120....

"To tell whether an action is right or wrong, ask what would happen if everyone did it."

-Anna Quindlen-

Pretty solid advice here by Anna. It follows along similar paths and the famous 'Golden Rule'. You know.... the 'Do unto others as you'd like them to do unto you' rule. Lets try it out......

Should I litter?
Should I gossip?
What about excessively borrowing on credit cards?
Sharing a compliment?
What about being as honest as I can with others?
Should I follow through on my word?

What would happen if everyone did the same on all these questions? Jeez, when put in these terms, it seems like a no brainer, doesn't it?

That's my view....... What say YOU?

Reminds me of a saying:
"What kind of world would this world be, if everyone in it was just like me?"
