Behind The Door



 
Noted philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein remarked that a man will be imprisoned in a room with a door that's unlocked and opens inwards; as long as it does not occur to him to pull rather than push. We are quick to offer expert advice to others, fast to see the error of their ways, yet for ourselves, we are too close to the forest to see the trees. If we could only hear for our own good the rational voice that we save for others, we could save ourselves a great deal of heartache.
