What actor grousing said: "How the (bleep) would you like to work in this business for as long as I have and have your child win an Oscar before you?"I was shocked at the tone of this statement, and I began to wonder what kind of parent would say such a thing.
Ever read some random thing and it sticks with you all day? Well, it happened to me on this day. As the day went by, I was convicted for judging this person because I did not know the context of this quote nor did I know his or her heart.
What I took away from this random trivia question:
- At times in order to know the true meaning of a quote, one must know the context in which it was spoken.
- I cannot stop people from taking my words out of context, but I do have control over what the context is.
- My words will be an enduring legacy, and therefore, I should use words carefully.
