Thought for the Day

Dear Readers,

I am sharing a thought I read in a story written by Alexander McCall Smith called Emma. “ …it has been the summer during which moral insight came to her – something that may happen to all of us, if it happens at all, at very different stages in our lives. This had happened because she had been able to make that sudden imaginative leap that lies at the heart of our moral lives: the ability to see, even for a brief moment, the world as it is seen by the other person. It is this understanding that lies behind all kindness to others, all attempts to ameliorate the situation of those who suffer, all those acts of charity by which we make our lives something more than the pursuit of the goals of the unruly ego.”
