People do not seem to realize that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character. -Ralph Waldo Emerson
Ever since I can across this quote it has been one of my favorites and it has colored all my social interactions. I am now convinced the reactions in social situations say a whole lot more about the people doing the reacting than it does about the people they are reacting to. Sure the person tweeting something stupid, is probably a little naive. Maybe even a little unpleasant. But the people who immediately assume they are a horrible person for doing something stupid, are most likely just horrible people themselves.
