Quotation

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The same object seen from the three different points of view-the past, the present, and the future - often exhibits three different faces upon us; like those sign-boards over shop doors, which represent the face of a lion as we approach, of a man when we are in front, and of an ass when we have passed. 

3's flash

Memory itself works on the concept of threes. The first time you observe something it's unique. The second time observe the same thing it becomes understood like a pattern. The third time observe the same thing you have a pattern to reference and it becomes known.
