A Statement Isn’t an Agreement

The interpretation does it

Today’s random word is statement

Professor Saputra entered the auditorium, where seventy-eight sophomores eagerly awaited him.

“Who has read the “Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz? he asked.

Lots of heads were shaking; less than ten hands were up.

He approached the board and wrote, “Be precise with your words,” then said, “That’s the one and only clause in our agreement. It’s not a statement. Meaning: you are not allowed to interpret it.”

He paused, then continued…

“This class empowers you not to be a slave of your own or others’ statement because a statement isn’t an agreement unless you interpret it as such.”

Thank you, Nancy Oglesby, for a great inspiration!
