As others see us

EVERY MAN, according to an ancient legend, is born into the world with two bags suspended from his neck: a small bag in front full of his neighbours’ faults, and a large bag behind filled with his own faults. Hence it is that men are quick to see the faults of others, and yet are often blind to their own failings.

Two Bags, Αἴσωπος from a translation by George Fyler Townsend

When the conversation got around to how my daughter enjoyed her post-graduation tour of Europe I said that I she had had a good time, and I’m sure she kept out of mischief because she’s a great kid. Well not so much of a kid any more.
