A Study in Paper Men...

If I've learnt nothing in life so far, I know that no two things are the same, nor will they ever be. If you and your best friend wear the same hairstyle everyday, or if you wear a uniform, or if you and your brother or sister look near identical, you are not the same.

The thing is, you'll never be the same as someone else. You may learn the same things {see History and Geography flash-cards for upcoming tests!} as them, but one will be smarter than the other, or have a better memory. Even a string of friends don't always get along perfectly.

Take these two paper men {yes, they are attached to the others, but just bare with me} for example. They, like all the others, were cut from the same piece of folded paper, and were cut from the same pattern. But what to you notice? They're flipped around {well, one of them}, for one, but their heads are slightly different and one of the man on the left's legs is longer than the opposite on the man on the right.

They were cut from the same piece of paper. They were cut with the same pattern. Yet they are different.
