[Tweet “We build too many walls and not enough bridges – Issac Newton #AtoZChallenge”]

AtoZChallenge – Issac Newton Quote

In literal terms, our cities are full of walls… the walls make houses, offices, clubs and their boundaries. The bridges, they are complex to build, need time and money and hence we have only few of them; on need basis. One cannot deny though that once a bridge is built, it makes things incredible simple. Bridges over water connect two land masses, across the road help people go over to the other side, over a traffic signal, help continue without a break in your journey.

In not so literal terms, we build walls around ourselves, our emotions, our hearts. Only a few people are let in via bridges and that too with trepidation. When anyone of these lets us down, the walls become higher and bridges come under strain. Isn’t that true?

  1. This one really deserves some thought. We hardly reach out to people. We are just connected virtually but that I think that is another wall – hiding behind the internet.

    The last line will really linger in my mind because it’s so true! Trust is really delicate and hard to build!

    1. I never thought of the internet as a wall… it has been a bridge in my book all along!! But then, it could be a wall to hide behind if you wanted to do something unpleasant 🙂

      If your heart has been broken and your trust has been shattered, you need some really powerful miracles to make it work again!

  2. Beautiful quote and the truth is realized by few.Some walls may be however necessary for survival.The trick is to make life flexible like a lego set.Wonderful topic for #A to zing

    1. Yes, some walls are necessary… but then the maturity lies in identifying just those and like you said, being flexible 🙂 thank you for linking the theme and sharing the post… I really appreciate it!

  3. Very true Ankita. We need to make those many bridges as many walls we have to let the peace be in. But seldom do we realise that we need more people other than our friends and family to interact.

  4. Well explained the Newton’s quote, Ankita, literally as well as figuratively. My perspective is if we have outnumbered the bridges by wall, use the walls as bridges. Your weakness is your strength if perceived differently.

Hope you enjoyed reading this post. Let me know your thoughts :)
