A Human Being vs Being Human


Here’s a quote that came my way yesterday: “There is a lot of difference between a human being and being human.” Interesting concept, don’t you think?

We could never fully define either, but to my mind, a human being is just that…being alive, being busy, being active, being in love, being joyful, being sad, being hungry, being here, being there, being sick, being healthy…and on and on and on…boundless descriptions of what a human being is all about.

Being human on the other hand is being all the things we are meant to be as humans: caring, loving, compassionate, thoughtful, truthful, considerate, kind, faithful, fruitful, interested, attentive…and on and on and on…boundless descriptions of what being human is all about.

Please feel free to add your input. It would make me very happy to hear from you…after all, I’m only human.

  1. Hi Pat, saw u scribbling away yesterday and knew it would be available to many in your blog today! You descriptions are worth noting, one is how things are and the other over which we have some control. Thanks and I love your finishing line! Trish
