Being alive means meeting many people, having many experiences, and seeing many things. This is not only true for you, but for anybody you meet as well. This is a great thing to remember as you meet someone new. Instead of just finding out their name and maybe what they do, what if instead you found out about a great experience which they had? What if you learn something about yourself in the process?
Learn about people you meet. A great quote from Emerson says “Every man is my superior in some way. In that, I learn of him.” These are great words to live by, and you never know what you will learn.
