The louder he talked of his honor, the faster we counted our spoons.Ralph Waldo Emerson
This quote is all I have to offer on this cold, February day. Every era has its difficulties. Emerson’s insight is worth considering during our own challenging times. My interpretation of this quote is, the more one speaks of virtue, the more suspicious we grow of their sincerity. Maybe, now is the time to count our spoons.
