"You never get a second chance to make a first impression"
First impressions are powerful, but are they always accurate? At first glance a calla lily bud is quite plain and ordinary, not much to catch the eye, often lost in its surroundings. Then it blossoms to the world and reveals a radiance, fluidity and purity. All the while teaching us not to judge a book by its cover.
“We don't know where our first impressions come from or precisely what they mean, so we don't always appreciate their fragility.”
First impression are deceiving
And so very often wrong.
The ones, that seem the weakest
Most often could be strong.
The quiet ones, the loudest
The obnoxious ones unsure,
The silly ones the saddest
And the rude we must endure.
First impressions are not honest,
Nor are they really fair,
Let's hold of on those impressions
Til the next time that we share.
“Don't be over self-confident with your first impressions of people.”
