Preoccupation with Closed Doors

Isn’t it incredible how inventors come up with the best quotes?

As if transforming the planet with their inventions isn’t enough, they have the remarkable ability to move us with their words.

While researching Alexander Graham Bell quotes for my “Phoning it In” post, I came across this gem:

“Sometimes we stare so long at a door that is closing that we see too late the one that is open.” – Alexander Graham Bell

Doors only stay open for a moment in time. And once they close, they usually remain shut – forever keeping in the darkness.

How can you see the light coming through an open door when you’re too preoccupied staring blindly at closed ones?
