A Quote and Maxim. An Expansion. Of Sharing Experiences.

It is invariably saddening to look through new eyes at things upon which you have expended your own powers of adjustment.

—F. Scott Fizgerald (Nick Carraway), The Great Gatsby

We are displeased whenever someone expresses a preference that differs from our own. More displeasing, even horrifying, is a friend’s hatred of something we too once hated but have grown to love after many trying experiences.
