Exploring Human Potential

7 & 7: Superficial vs. Deep


Shallow foundations are always cause for worry. They don’t support the weight. They don’t resist the storms. They don’t accommodate the shifts and strains that come and go with changes on the ground. People with foundations, deep livers, fear neither weight, nor storms, nor shifting ground. They live by cause and effect, not by luck, more knowledgeable than well-read. They know who they are and are content to play that out.


Deep down I am very shallow.

Charles Haughey

People living deeply have no fear of death.

Anaïs Nin

Shallow men believe in luck, wise and strong men in cause and effect.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Deep versed in books and shallow in himself.

John Milton

I think somehow we learn who we really are and then live with that decision.

Eleanor Roosevelt
