I walk down the street

Updated: Mar 9

I've been collecting quotes and stories for a while now. And I thought I'd share this one with you.

  1. I walk down the street. There is a hole in the footpath. I don't see it. I trip and fall over. IT ISN'T MY FAULT.

  2. I walk down the same street. There is a hole in the footpath. I fall over again. I don’t think the hole is in the same place. IT STILL ISN’T MY FAULT.

  3. I walk down the same street. There is a hole in the footpath. I see it. I still trip and fall over . . . I see this is getting to be a habit. My eyes are open. I know where I am. IT IS MY FAULT. I get up immediately.

  4. I walk down the same street. There is a hole in the footpath. I walk around it.

  5. I walk down another street.

Adapted from Autobiography in Five Short Chapters (Portia Nelson, 1980)
