Half-full, Half-empty, or Both?

Why must we either look only for the good or bad in people; why exclude one or the other? People have both strengths and weaknesses; pluses and minuses; virtues and vices. It would be unreal to assume that people are all virtuous; it would be unreal to assue that all people are incapable of virtue because they have vices.

A New Year's Resolution

Fantasy. Everyone in the world has their own fantasies; is this a good thing or a bad thing? I say that all we have to do is look at the world around us to know that trying to make what is not real become real is very dangerous.

My New Year’s resolution is to cease trying to make my fantasies become reality.
