Thought-Provoking Quote: Mignon McLaughlin

It’s impossible to be loyal to your family, your friends, your country, and your principles, all at the same time.
-Mignon McLaughlin, author (1915-)

It makes sense to me in that you can’t have four “number one priorities.” Even with being loyal to my family, my daughter comes first, then my partners, then my family of choice, and finally my family of origin (not all at once, but at different levels).

I think McLaughlin left something out, though—being true to yourself. It can be argued that “your principles” implies that, but I’d prefer to say “yourself.”

Please discuss 🙂
