I dunno why, but I love this line that confucious wrote:

"he who practices what he preaches should preach what he practices"

I believe it goes something like that, but i find it fascinating.

Interesting quote, I like it, I think it's very true. Although often I find myself or others doing the opposite of practing what they preach and sometime they don't realize it until someone else points it out to them. But if someone points it out to me I try to ammend that fact and actually practice what I preach. Wink

I suppose as long as the effort to be consistent is there that's what counts, not to say that you shouldn't always allow yourself the chance to contradict yourself. I often say something in haste and have to hit the edit button later on. It's always good to have a group of friends that will allow you to do that.
