Open Lines / The Great Gatsby

F. Scott Fitzgerald

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.
‘Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone,’ he told me, ‘just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.’

F. Scott Fitzgerald

En mi primera infancia mi padre me dio un consejo que, desde entonces, no ha cesado de darme vueltas por la cabeza.
«Cada vez que te sientas inclinado a criticar a alguien —me dijo— ten presente que no todo el mundo ha tenido tus ventajas…»
