Monday Morning Quotes

The Monday Morning Quotes began in 1998; first thing each week I sent a quote to a small group of friends and allies as an inspiration for thought or even dialogue. Sometime in 1999, as the list of recipients grew, I started adding my own thoughts. By 2001, there were hundreds of people receiving the quote and my reflections each week. I will continue to add to the archive here from both directions-–newest ones and older ones. Dialogue is still welcome . . .

Quote #641 - See More Conclude Less #SeeMore #ConcludeLess

20 Oct, 2014

"What you see and what you hear depends a great deal on where you are standing. It also depends on what sort of person you are."

C.S. Lewis

"The more I see, the less I know for sure."

John Lennon

Conclusion. It's one of those great layered words.
It means to end something.
It also means to decide you know something.
But to end something does not mean to know something,
and to make a conclusion about it
does not mean to know it,
only to decide you do,
and thereby to end learning any more about it.

I try to avoid that.
I try to avoid the end of learning about anything.
I try not to draw conclusions, only
extrapolate threads of meaning
synthesize varied perspectives
come to some new understandings
that will assuredly continue to evolve.

Conclusions are dangerous.
You might think you actually know something.
And as soon as you think you know something,
reality loves to smack you in the face.

The more you see the more you know, yes,
but, too, the more you know how little you know.

See more.
Conclude less.
