Reflections – Day Two

Still following in the footsteps of Wibble.

Despite a web search, that brought up numerous articles concerning unintended consequences across many fields of the human experience, I was unable to find a source for the quote and therefore cannot attribute it to the original author.

Nevertheless, it strikes me as one of the core aspects of human behaviour!

As offered on Monday, here are my nominations for today:

Day Three of Reflections will be along next week!

    1. Agree Susan. However, the central premise of this quote, and why it has appealed to me for a long time, is the power of those consequences. Lovely to hear from you, as always! Have a wonderful weekend.

      1. Back again Paul after a couple of days absence.. And I will try my best.. Though so many other things are pressing at the moment..
