Today’s quote is from Mr. William James, who is reputed to be the Father of American Psychology. He was an influential teacher and public speaker in his day, his study was Pragmatism. His works are a statement of American philosophy, highly regarded. Plus, he seems like a good guy.
Rhinos are pragmatic, doing what needs doing, and getting on with it. We cope with obstacles as best We may, either a) pushing through, or b) skirting around. Or c) chatting with the obstacle itself, to work things out. The first two systems are emotionally fulfilling, the last solution is more productive.
