I adore this quote. It really is true, there must be two sides to every coin. Or perhaps I just like it because it makes the upcoming holiday indulgence seem like a prerequisite for being a good kid the rest of the year. More cookies now means more good deeds in 2013? Yes. Let’s go with that.
I overheard someone this weekend saying (and I think maybe I’ve seen it online somewhere as well?) ” if he is nice to you, but he isn’t nice to the waiter…then he isn’t a nice person“. I love that, and I think this quote is a perfect match to that idea. Here’s hoping that every year we are superior to who we were the year before!
