On a recent road trip, we stopped at a drive-thru for a grab-and-run dinner. Scrawled on the back of the building behind the restaurant were faded, spray-painted words. While waiting for the food to arrive, I tried to decipher them.
Imagine my surprise when I realized it was one of my favorite quotes.
“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” – Plato
I love moments like that. Moments that flip in the mind; where you think you’re seeing one thing and then a light goes on and you see something else entirely. Something breathtaking or beautiful or inspiring.
