“But it means well”
could be the title for this quick little sketch I created years ago:
Intentions are not all that matters. Of course they do matter, to some extent! The Why…. is far from irrelevant. More important than the reason (our explanation on why we do something) is the root motivator. It sounds like those may be one and the same, however, in many cases, they are not.
Sometimes, things are not at all what they seem (or how they are presented).
Always remember that. 🙂

From “Time Must Have a Stop” by Aldous Huxley (Author of “Brave New World”)
