On this weeks Topic Tuesday Meredith picks a quote from page 261 of Talking to Strangers by Malcolm Gladwell.
"The thing we want to learn about a stranger is fragile. If we tread carelessly, it will crumble under our feet. And from that follows a second cautionary note: we need to accept that the search to understand a stranger has real limits. We will never know the whole truth. We have to be satisfied with something short of that. The right way to talk to strangers is with caution and humility."
