You have been told that, even like a chainUnseasonal weather does not negate the seasons.
you are as weak as your weakest link.
This is but half the truth. You are also
as strong as your strongest link.
To measure you by your smallest deed is
to reckon the power of the ocean by the frailty
of its foam.
To judge you by your failures is to cast
blame upon the seasons for their inconstancy.
(The Prophet; Kahlil Gibran)
We measure and we judge only when we fail of a broader view. Weakest? Strongest? Neither survives the broadest view.
