What’s the Difference Between Complete and Finished?

No English dictionary has been able to adequately explain the difference between complete and finished*.

However, in a recent linguistic conference held in London,
England, and attended by some of the best linguists in the world,
Samsunder Balgogin, a Guanese, was the clear winner.

His final challenge was this: “Some say there is no difference
between complete and finished. Please explain the difference between
complete and finished in a way that is easy to understand.”

His astute answer: “When you marry the right woman, you are complete. But, when you marry the wrong woman, you are finished. If the right one catches you with the wrong one, you are completely finished.

His answer was received with a standing ovation.

I have found over the years that there is no such thing as reality, it is only how we perceive it. Each of us may have a different view of it because of our different beliefs and experiences. Two individuals can be sitting side by side, looking at the same event and “see” two entirely different outcomes based on their individual perceptions
