My line today is from one of Agatha Christie‘s detective novels.
Her sleuth, Miss Jane Marple, is an elderly spinster born in the Victorian era. Intelligent and observant, she manages to solve murders and other crimes long before the police can.
She is , however, skeptical and cynical regarding human nature. I am quoting from her :
“I always believe the worst of people; it is usually true.”
I am afraid I personally find it difficult to agree with this point of view. I am liable to take people at face value.. Even to those who seem less than perfect, I try to give the benefit of the doubt.I must admit that I am disappointed in some people, but these are not very many.
Do you agree with me or are you a skeptic like Miss Marple ?
I would love to find out.
Do let me know in the comments section below.
