  • There is a saying that the five fingers of the
    hand are so different from each other and in the
    same way each person is different from the other.
    When I see the different types of people, I am
    reminded of Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple.
    She lived in a small village, but she always said
    that human nature is the same in any place. If
    we understand that then it is so much easier to
    understand people.
    It is true.
    We meet someone or just see someone and
    immediately they remind us of someone else.
    And then I wonder if their nature is also similar:)
    It is an interesting thought.

    But basically no two people are the same.
    There are people who are a joy to meet, talking to
    them is so stimulating and they leave an indelible
    impression on us. They are so interested in all
    that is happening around them. They have this
    'never say die' attitude. They do what they want
    to and have no time to moan about getting old :)
    In spite of the many troubles,they are so positive
    in life.
    My father-in-law is one such person.
    Some time ago, my son’s friend was telling about
    a lady he had met. He said it was was a pleasure
    to talk to her ,in spite of the age difference .
    She was having some age related problems, but
    for her even those problems were not just problems,
    but were all new experiences and she said she was
    learning a lot from them.

    On the other hand there are people who always
    find fault in everything. They are so used to
    looking at the minus points that they find it
    very difficult to look at the plus points.
    My father-in-law firmly believes that if there are
    ten plus points and two minus points ,we should
    just ignore those minus points.
    Such a wonderful attitude.
    People will look at us as we look at them.

    None are so old as those who have outlived enthusiasm.
    ~Henry David Thoreau
