There is a story they tell of two dogs.
Both at separate times walk into the same room. One comes out wagging his tail, while the other comes out growling.
A woman watching this goes into the room to see what could possibly make one dog so happy and the other so mad. To her surprise, she finds the room filled with mirrors.
The happy dog found a thousand happy dogs looking back at him, while the angry dog saw only angry dogs growling back at him.
What you see in the world around you is a reflection of who you are.
