Quote of the Week, Tennessee Williams

Our new quote of the week:

“If the writing is honest it cannot be separated from the man who wrote it.” Tennessee Williams

Is it not true that anytime we speak or communicate in any way, it must come from a sincere and honest heart?  How can we act in any other way?  If we truly and deeply believe things, surely those beliefs must always control and guide us in whatever we do and say.  Can we pretend to set those beliefs aside for some other purpose when we feel that it is expected of us (or at least allowable)?

Take, for instance, the work place.  This quote we are looking at is from a professional author.  He says that, as an author, when he writes he must do so from the perspective of who he is.  When you read his writing, he feels, you will know him as a person as well.  Isn’t this the way it must be in all of our dealings in whatever forum we enter into?  If we are businessmen, we must not try to fill the role of businessman as it is expected of us, but rather fulfill it as we believe it ought to be.  If teacher or doctor or lawyer or serviceman or any other profession, we must live in that profession first and foremost according to what we believe and who we are.

This may not always be as easy as it sounds, but let us all determine together to act and live according to truth in what we believe.
