I was going to a party the other day, and there were a couple of folks who would be there and who didn’t always act exactly the way I wished they would act. I wished they would act nice, but I suspected they were going to cause trouble, and I was going to have to deal with it.
So I was making my battle plans, but I knew that if I went in ready to fight, there was little chance of us not fighting.
And then it hit me: “Be the change you want to see in the world.”
It wasn’t easy, but by the time we got to the party I was ready to be nice. And wouldn’t you know it – the potential troublemakers were as nice (if not nicer) than me.
Which might be seen a fractal society in action
