I have never understood this one. OK - its good to learn about a person before judging him. But, what has that to do with walking in his shoes?

You can try.... but the shoes will never fit!----2013 Gary Dean Mercer Clark

This I understand even less. Why should the shoes not fit? If they fit or not is only dependent on we having the same foot size.

But .... I think I agree in principle. Too many do too fast judgements of people. And in a forum where the actual communication is strongly crippled, you should avoid judging people until after a loooooooong time.

LOL--it is a play on the old American Indian proverb: You can't judge another until you walk a mile in his moccasins.    It means, that unless you've experienced what that person has experienced--that you can't make judgement on him.   My addition of no matter how you try--the shoe will never fit---is actually the correct quote I made originally. LOL.

That is the corrected quote. LOL
