Cogitable Quote for 16/11/10

 

 

“………, it would do us no harm to remember oftener than we do, that vices are sometimes virtues carried to excess!”

Mr Morfin to Miss Harriet in, ‘Dombey and Son‘ by Charles Dickens.

 

I love this quote.

When I think about things that ‘irk’ me about people, like nagging, overpowering attention, bossiness, it makes me think about their intentions. More often-than-not, I find that there is a virtuous seed behind their excessive behaviour.
