"The world is a looking-glass and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face. Frown at it, and it will in turn look sourly upon you; laugh at it and with it, and it is a jolly kind companion."
William Makepeace Thackeray, Vanity Fair.
Trite as these words may be to some, I find them to be true. But it's not always a good thing. There are times when we are sad/upset/mad and these are the reflections that come back to further complicate our lives. The one exception, I have found, is when we are truly grieving. Then what seems like 'grace' enters the world and we are surrounded by the love and understanding of others. - Beth Almond Ford
