Whether it is life or a person – if you always face the sun, you will never see the shadows. While there is a bit of innocence to it – it really helps a person grow.
On people: Frankl explained with his metaphor to crabbing that if you take a person as he/she really is, the default negative “crosswinds” in our mind make him/her worse. If we overestimate people, however, we promote them to what they really can be.
On a lighter note:
Some things in life are bad
They can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse
When you’re chewing on life’s gristle
Don’t grumble, give a whistle
And this’ll help things turn out for the best…
…always look on the bright side
The original Hellen Keller quote : “Keep your face to the sun and you will never see the shadows”
