Narrow or Broad?

This is an addition to my previous “Thought” entitled “Unity in Diversity,” which was about “narrow-mindedness” versus “open-mindedness.” I talked about how sometimes Hare Krishnas are thought to be narrow minded, and the thinking that says it’s not possible to have a broad view without embracing ‘all of life.’ In support of the “narrow view,” I ran across this quote by F. Scott Fitzgerald: “I was going to…become again that most limited of all specialists, the ‘well-rounded’ man. This isn’t just an epigram – life is much more successfully looked at from a single window, after all.”
