“The world is a looking glass and gives back
to every man the reflection of his own face.”
William Makepeace Thackeray
Once upon a time there lived two dogs. Both dogs at separate times walk into the same room. One comes out wagging his tail while the other comes out growling.
A woman watching this goes into the room to see what could possibly make one dog so happy and the other so mad. To her surprise, she finds a room filled with mirrors.
The happy dog found a thousand happy dogs looking back at him, while the angry dog saw only angry dogs growling back at him.
The moral of this story. What you see in the world around you is only a reflection of who we are.
