Quote IV

“If you regret kissing me – take back your kiss.”

— Proverb, “Caravan of Dreams” by Idries Shah

We all change. If we didn’t change, that would be no good. It would be a sign that we didn’t learn or grow.

Change – of tastes, of opinions, of passions – is not the mark of a weak mind. It is the sign of an adaptable mind, of a spirit that seeks understanding and truth, which does not become trapped in the dogma of the person it was yesterday.

But we remain responsible for the decisions and actions of our previous self, of the person we were in the past. Actions endure, even if we are no longer the person we were when we took them.

The mark we leave on others are harder to change than the people we are. Our actions survive the death of our personalities.

Consider them carefully.
