Helped by the stranger

I like this quote, posted by Attitude of Gratitude:

"All of us are influenced by somebody. Not to be influenced is to remain an ignorant person. Most of us hinder our thinking, particularly around spiritual things, because of pride. We don't like change. We find it hard to accept attitudes and opinions that differ from our own. Pride keeps us deaf and often stupid. However, the daily program of a lived spirituality encourages a variety of opinions and attitudes. We can learn from different customs, lifestyles and religions. We can be helped in our understanding of life by the stranger." ~Fr Leo

Nice. I think about this often, how music, and really all art and creativity is patched pieces put together anew, by a new mind, in a new time.
