"With the possible exception of our friends and loved ones, the people we meet judge us by external trappings. That's a given. We race to have the new iPhone or Nokia, or the latest, slimmest Mac. There are so many of these trappings that we have to choose which ones to embrace and why. Ideally, we embrace the trappings that are in line with who we are, but we can also embrace them because they are important to people we value. The point (as with all things) is to know and accept our motivations and to make our choices accordingly."
-Didith Rodrigo on "External Trappings"
