“Make a careful list of all things done to you that you abhorred. Don’t do them to others, ever. Make another list of things done for you that you loved. Do them for others, always.”
Poetry, prose, and quotes often have different meanings or interpretations based on the reader’s life experiences. Below, I have offered my initial inference of what the words above mean to me. Please feel free to leave yours in the comments section so that other readers might realize a more diverse interpretation. (The context in which the words may have been originally presented, and by whom, are not the primary issues, just what the words might mean to us, or for us, individually, in the now.)
My interpretation of this quote: Do to others the things that you would like done, and not done, to yourself. It may help them feel good. It will definitely help you feel good. And, it’s good for your success to boot. People like to do business with people they like.
Tomorrow is promised to no one!
