I just finished a fascinating book called Cross Cultural Connections by Duane Elmer. I am amazed at the interactions we as humans have with each other and how little things matter as we connect with each other. By the way, I highly recommend this book as it will help you understand who you are so that you can effectively relate and communicate to others in your day to day interactions. I don’t want to do a book review so let me just leave you with some quotes to chew on.
“To be surprised, to wonder, is to begin to understand.” Jose Ortega Y Gassett
“Human beings draw close to each other by their common nature, but habits and customs keep them apart.” Confucius
“We stand in awe of the ocean, the thunderstorm, the sunset, the mountains; but we pass by a human being without notice even though the person is God’s most magnificent creation.” Augustine
“If you want to travel fast ….. go alone. If you want to travel far ….. go together.” African Proverb
