what may be right for them might not be right for you

People are always telling you what you should do. But what may be right for them might not be right for you. Life is no rehearsal; it’s the real thing.

Written on a watch in an ‘outdoors’ shop.

But ‘people are telling you what you should do’ is about the last thing that happens. People seem to be more averse to suggesting there are moral norms to which others conform than ever. And they are even more averse to telling people directly what they ought not to do.

And as for, ‘what may be right for them might not be right for you’ is fair enough if we’re talking about somone imposing their choice of ice-cream flavour on a whole group. I don’t care if you prefer vanilla as a private, subjective, lifestyle option. But it ‘might not be right for’ Bin Laden to allow religious freedom under his preferred Shariah worldwide State. Hey, it’s just a wristwatch man!!

No matter what they tell you; no matter what they say; no matter what they teach you; what you believe is true.
