Midweek Meditation: Objectivity?

I have often heard people telling me that we need to be more objective in life. Sometimes, even in emotional matters or feelings that cannot be easily resolved or explained away, they use such a hammer of "objectivity" simply because everything to them looks like a nail. Wisely, the French novelist, Jean D' Ormesson words it accurately that there are some things in life that simply cannot be objectively seen, but to be simply be seen doing things together. Today, there are two quotes. One on marriage and the other on group consensus building.

"The goal in marriage is not to think alike, but to think together." (Robert C. Dodds)

"Where opinions, morals and politics are concerned, there is no such thing as objectivity. The best we can hope for is that freedom will enable subjective points of view to meet and complement each other." (French novelist, Jean D' Ormersson)
