Everything is personal
I was working on the Automated Check In Machine at my library when two of the bins on the machine filled up at once. I cried out in anger. I took it personally.
There is an all too famous and brilliant bit in The Godfather where Michael says "It's not personal, Sonny. It's strictly business."
Of course it's a brilliant bit of cinema because it's a lie.
Everything is personal.
Everything that touches you, everything you see, everything that ever happens to you your whole life through, it's all personal.
It's just not all against you.
