Quote of the Day

imagesSeldom, very seldom, does complete truth belong to any human disclosure; seldom can it happen that something is not a little disguised, or a little mistaken.”

from Jane Austen’s Emma

Either a little disguised … or a little mistaken. Either our hearts, our recollection, our stories, or the many vows we’ve made make complete human disclosure next to impossible. We are all limited by the lens of our own experience. Somehow it’s not so dishonest as it is beautiful. Not the lies or the deceit—neither of which is always intentional, but the vulnerability inherent in such an idea; in the enormous potential at our disposal.
