I am a big believer in the quote, “Look beyond quotes.” When you see someone’s life, you want to see a real person, not a quote. When you see a quote, you see someone’s thoughts and feelings. When you see someone’s life, you want to see a real person, not a quote.
You don’t want to see your life through someone else’s eyes. It’s like when you go to a concert and see a picture of someone else in a concert hall. You aren’t looking at the person, you’re seeing a picture.
When I see a quote, I am more interested in what the author is saying. When I see a quote, I want to hear the author speak. When I see a quote, I want to live that quote and live it with me. When I see a quote, I want to live the quote with a real person.
I think a lot of the time we focus on quotes from famous people, and then forget they are real people who wrote them. The quote from Bruce Springsteen is actually from a man named Jon Smith. Like Springsteen, Smith was actually a musician, who was also a self-trained painter. I’ve never seen a quote from an artist from his own life, so I have no opinion on it.
I’m not sure if it’s because I’ve never seen him, or if I’ve never seen a quote from him, but I personally think that Bruce Wayne, the billionaire playboy, is a much better choice for the quote than Johnny Cash. Johnny Cash was a singer, a songwriter, a musician, and a comedian, but he also made music as an artist himself. He was a man of many talents, and that includes being a great painter.
Bruce Wayne was born in a humble family in the midwest, and he grew up to be a wealthy playboy. He went to the best schools, and he traveled the world. He had what many would call a “great life”, and I think he was actually one of the most self-aware people Ive ever met. He didn’t need anyone to tell him what to do, and he could see himself from a mile away.
That’s not to say people like Bruce Wayne were the smartest people Ive ever met, but he did have a way of seeing things that was completely unique. When youre surrounded by a lot of smart people, they tend to get a little lost and distracted. I think Bruce Wayne was the exact opposite. He was extremely self-aware, and he knew what he wanted to do, and he knew how to get there.
He didn’t need to be told what to do. He knew he wanted to be a hero. But what he knew wasn’t always useful to him. The more he was surrounded by smart people, the more those same smart people became his enemies. He realized that they couldn’t see the good in him, because they had their own reasons for hating him. As he made friends he was able to become less self-aware.
That’s what Bruce Wayne did. He knew that he wanted to become a hero, but he also knew how to make the most of his smartness and not get caught up in being a hero. He didn’t need to be told what to do. He was smart enough to know what those who hated him did. It was obvious.
Yes, it seems like we’ve been hearing about a lot of people who hate Bruce Wayne (and a few villains) for the wrong reasons. But as it turns out, all we’re hearing about is people who hate the wrong people. Its okay though. People who hate your enemies are like people who hate your parents. They love you anyway.
