It Takes All Sorts

Like children not content with observing a newly installed, freshly painted, previously unslidden slide from afar, but who insist on running up full of expectation of experiencing something new with the whole living self, so, too, we realize it takes all sorts to make a world.

To realize it takes all sorts to make a world, one must have seen a certain number of the sorts with one’s own eyes. There is all the difference in the world between believing academically, with the intellect, and believing personally, with the whole living self.
