“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.”
Carl R. Rogers
This made me slowly smile and say out loud, 'Wow. That's cool.'(Li'l play by play, there. Srsly, I love this.)
Oh I love this quote!
Lovely !cheers, parsnip
That's a nice philosophy!
Perfect. Now teach me how.
suze, it is.tamago, me too.ap, :-)susie, I think it is a good metaphor.ac, :-}kerry, indeed.stephanie, it is. I always thought Rogers was very well adjusted and liked his books.jay, well, Rogers was a very famous psychologist at one time. So you can read his famous book, On Becoming a Person: A Therapist's View of Psychotherapy Paperbackby Carl Rogers. http://www.amazon.com/On-Becoming-Person-Therapists-Psychotherapy/dp/039575531XHe can certainly explain it better than I ever could.
Laoch, I don't remember where I read it, who wrote it, but you got me recalling a scrap of poetry:"My love of autumn sunsets is part of loving you." Thanks.

geo, nice.wow, I think it is nicely stated.sl, indeed.susan, I agree.
Yes, unfolding. It's really unfair to not allow people time to unfold.
