    Now I don’t quite know which way to fall with that one. The reference to scripture and royal law pushes me one way; the guidance to love our neighbours pushes me another way, but love “as thyself”? I often cannot stand myself, and then my neighbour is a rough and ugly bloke really, even if he does often offer me beer. I’ll have to think about it. Better than my usual instant scoffing dismissal though?

      This quote is a response to someone who doesn’t really understand my thoughts and represents my thoughts other than they are.

      I find the quote thought provoking, I have reflected on it for many years and tried to perfect my own thoughts…

    I saw the word James in the reader and thought – oh no. But it was a different other James. ;-)

    I think your quote and the picture complement each other, Cherie

  4. james higham says:

    As for the quote, yes I do subscribe to that and do love my neighbour as myself. If I’m hard on my neighbour, it’s only because I’m also hard on myself. If I’m kind to my neighbour, it’s because I also appreciate kindness. Yet I also appreciate truth can be hard at times.

    I tried commenting yesterday, Cherry, with no success, so I’m glad it’s working now. Can you just imagine what kind of world we’d live in today if everyone lived by this “rule!”
