strangers

A Quote by Maya Angelou on smile, love, home, family, and strangers

If you have only one smile in you, give it to the people you love.  Don't be surly at home, then go out in the street and start grinning "Good morning" at total strangers.

Maya Angelou (1928 -)

A Quote by Epictetus on banquets, party, strangers, and attention

Avoid banquets which are given by strangers an ignorant persons. But if there is ever occasion to join them, let your attention be carefully fixed, that you slip not into the manner of the vulgar (the uninstructed).

Epictetus (c. 50 - 120)

A Quote by Dana Meadows on culture, talk, friends, causes, believe, join, strangers, crass messages, embarrassing, shyness, intrusion, rejection, share, real, heartfelt, commitments, easier, cynicism, and dreams

It is not OK in this culture to talk to friends about causes you believe in, much less to ask them to join in. It's OK to blast perfect strangers with crass messages every hour of the day, but it's a tinge embarrassing, it brings up some shyness, it seems an intrusion, it risks rejection to share real heartfelt commitments. It's easier to share our cynicism with strangers than our dreams with friends.
