Interpretation

Three people look at the same thing and interpret it three different ways.

Mrytle sees a cute cottage with a red door.

Lola sees snow to shovel.

Elsie sees a poorly insulated roof that leaks heat, melting the snow enough to form majestic icicles.

Who is right? No one. Who is wrong? No one. All views are necessary because the truth of any situation is broad and ever expanding. Truth is infinite.

There are no facts, only interpretations.
Friedrich Nietzsche

We not only interpret the character of events… we may also interpret our interpretations.
Kenneth Burke

Spiritual ideas are expressed only in “new tongues.”[1] These ideas are interpreted by the translation of the spiritual original into the language which human thought can comprehend.–5th edition of 21st Century Science and Health

[1] Mark 16:17
