“When did we see each other face-to-face? Not until you saw into my cracks and I saw into yours. Before that, we were just looking at ideas of each other, like looking at your window shade but never seeing inside. But once the vessel cracks, the light can get in. The light can get out.”—John Green, Paper Towns
Principle vs. Practicality
I support Mozilla Firefox to world’s end in principle. However, I use Google Chrome in practicality.
My parents told me that it is not practical to go into non-profit business. I, however, cannot support many large corporations’ businesses in principle.
It is not practical to get arrested in a protest, but it is true to your principles to stand up for your beliefs.
Practicality is generally subject to the status quo. Principle is very subjective to one’s identity.
Unless you have your own sense of practicality or if practicality is your principle (or other possibilities…).
But if your principles were different from what you see as practical, then which would you choose? Which should you choose?
