Interesting words - Doris Lessing
"When someone new approaches us, we are all caution; we take that person's measure. A thousand incredibly rapid measurements and assessments go on, putting him, her, in an exact place, to end in the silent judgement: yes, this one's for me, no, we have nothing in common; no, he, she, is a threat...Watch out! Danger! and so on... What a prison we are all in, how impossible it is for any one of us to let a man or a woman or a child come near without the defensive inspection, the rapid, sharp, cold analysis."
Doris Lessing
