The frame through which I viewed the world changed too, over time. Greater than scene, I came to see, is situation. Greater than situation is implication. Greater than all of these is a single, entire human being, who will never be confined in any frame.

About This Quote

This quote is connected to one of the most famous quotes in the English language, “It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.” This is where one can see that when one is in a situation that they aren’t sure how they will react, they begin to react… they react. This quote also illustrates how powerful our opinions are. We often think that our opinions are not as powerful as those who surround us, but those around us will always be influenced by our own knowledge and beliefs.
