MY QUOTE FOR DAY 1
“Do not mind anything that anyone tells you about anyone else. Judge everyone and everything for yourself.”
– The portrait of a lady
ABOUT THE BOOK 📚 “THE PORTRAIT OF A LADY”
The Portrait of a Lady is the story of a spirited young American woman, Isabel Archer, who, in “confronting her destiny”, finds it overwhelming. She inherits a large amount of money and subsequently becomes the victim of Machiavellian scheming by two American expatriates. Like many of James’s novels, it is set in Europe, mostly England and Italy. Generally regarded as the masterpiece of James’s early period, this novel reflects James’s continuing interest in the differences between the New World and the Old, often to the detriment of the former. It also treats in a profound way the themes of personal freedom, responsibility, and betrayal.
MY TAKE ON THE QUOTE
Peolple have different perceptions about others based on their experiences, and most of these experiences are subjective, founded on the nature of the encounter. When people present their opinions about others, care must be taken to analyze them before arriving at conclusions because these opinions may be colored by personal biases and preferences. It is always safer to form your opinions and judgements about others from your own encounter with them, and not from what others have said.
