A wise man was sitting outside his village when a traveler came up and asked, " I am looking to move from my present village - What kind of people live in this village?" The wise man asked," What kind of people live in your village? " The man said, " They are mean, cruel,rude." The wise man replied," The same kind of people live in this village too." After some time another traveler came by and asked the same question, and the wise man asked him, "What kind of people live in your village?"And the traveler replied, " The people are very kind, courteous, polite and good." The wise man said, " you will find the same kind of people here too."
We see the world not the way it is but the way we are. If our motives are good, we assume the motives of others are good too. If our intentions are bad, we assume that the intentions of others are bad.
