Interesting Contrasts

Sometimes I come across two things which can seem very similar on the surface, but whose differences I find really useful to bear in mind. For example:

...the difference between hearing and listening

...the difference between loving and caring ——— Picked up from a Mabel Ye comic

...the difference between being busy and being time constrained ——— Picked up from Merlin Mann

...the difference between recognising and generating ——— Picked up from Lesswrong

...the difference between friendship and companionship

...the difference between confidence and arrogance
