I have been a fan of this quote since I first heard it as a teenager. I first encountered it while studying psychology at the University of Pennsylvania. It is a thought-provoking quote that has stuck with me as a teacher throughout my professional career. It reminds us that the more we experience life the more we become aware of all the little moments we are unaware of.
This reminds us that even though we may be completely unaware of what is happening around us, that does not mean we are not aware of it. We can’t make it happen without awareness and experience. We learn to slow down and notice our thoughts and feelings so we don’t make them happen. When we learn to pay attention to our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors we become able to use them as a tool to help us achieve our goals.
The main reason why we get so interested in games is because we want to know how others think. We need to know how others think, and those who are not capable of thinking they are right, and who they are, are better than the rest of us.
