Human Plus Nature Equals...

Real Estate Agent with Future Home Realty

Human Plus Nature Equals...

Human nature.  Why do we use this phrase when referring to the negative only?  

People who play or scam other people...just human nature.

Those who are only about themselves and their selfishness...just human nature.

People who lie, cheat and steal...just human nature.

In our society, the term "human nature" seems to always have a bad connotation, applying to our baser qualities.  Why is that?


I long for the day when someone:

Gives $$ to a worthwhile charity and we say...just human nature.
Loves his/her neighbor...just human nature.
Cares about senior citizens...just human nature.
Helps wherever there is a need...just human nature.

Wouldn't that be wonderful?

Peggy, I think everthing above the flowers is human nature!

Everything below the flowers is also human nature...when it's convenient.

There really are some good people in this world, but sometimes it feels as if they are far and few between.  I hope we get to that day of yours.
