THINKING...just a little!

i will start this blog entry by just saying i had some passing thoughts that was reinforced by doing a little reading....well here's to passing thoughts.........

The truth that survives is simply the lie that is pleasantest to believe

The first great gift we can bestow on others is a good example

The concept of boredom entails an inability to use up present moments in a personally fulfilling way

To give a generous hope to a man of his own nature, is to enrich him immeasurably

Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere

If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself

To live is the rarest thing in the world Most people exist, that is all

Love doesn't sit there like a stone, it has to be made, like bread: remade all the time, made new


i just figured i would share a few thoughts!


live more, laugh often, love much

Sunrise, are these your thoughts and your words?

"The truth that survives is simply the lie that is pleasantest to believe"
This sounds uncharacteristicly pessimistic coming from you...or perhaps I don't understand the meaning.

"The first great gift we can bestow on others is a good example"
Yes, I agree....should be etched in stone somewhere.

"The concept of boredom entails an inability to use up present moments in a personally fulfilling way"
OK.....I get it.

"To give a generous hope to a man of his own nature, is to enrich him immeasurably"
This one I don't really understand.

"Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere"
I would change this one to say...Love of learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere.......and you would put my philosophy of life into a nutshell.

"If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself"
Hmmmmm...I have always been a bit uncertain about this idea. I have never been very good at hating anyone....I only dislike certain people. I dislike Rush Limbaugh....but for the life of me I cannot see how that relates back to something I dislike about myself.

"To live is the rarest thing in the world Most people exist, that is all"
Difficult to parse out the difference between living and existing. I would like to hear you say more about this.

"Love doesn't sit there like a stone, it has to be made, like bread: remade all the time, made new"
I get what you are saying but the analogy doesn't move me....and me the bread maker!

well redbird....all of them are parts of my thoughts...things that i have been talking about today...things that i have noticed about people....

the first one....took me by total surprise...like you...it came from an unlikely person....its funny how people tend to think and react and say things they wouldnt normally think....my follow up post expalining what they all meant...and why on my mind...didnt make it through...but as soon as i fix whatever....it will all be clear to you!!!...funny about the bread thing....i was looking at the techniques at the bakery and the cashier said love is bread....and that led me to this.... it will come through...im sure of it!!!

being online...well im back on desktop ....that gives me limited access to friendfinder messenger...so gotta try another way redbird....*SIGH* i do miss it too...you always seem to know what to say to make me feel a bit better!!! well i havent been no where...still around...still walking the good walk....

live more, laugh often, love much

The truth that survives is simply the lie that is pleasantest to believe ~~
Now this one was really interesting....someone dear to me is having a hard time understanding why people have a hard time telling the truth. So this was his result....this is what they believe...thats why its easier to tell a lie...because they distort the truth just a little because its ok to believe it...or seems plausible.... I somewhat agree...i dont know what happens when someone find the truth to not be comforting...i dont know how they can be dishonest or hide behind what is really the truth!!

The first great gift we can bestow on others is a good example-pretty self explanatory...sometimes we draw our own confidence from others who just shine so much.

The concept of boredom entails an inability to use up present moments in a personally fulfilling way~same....you should never be bored!!!

To give a generous hope to a man of his own nature, is to enrich him immeasurably- this is just a passing thought that if a person is in the element they can adapt the most in...if they have everything needed to survive well....and make progress....then he should be on top of the world....

Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere....everyday there should be something new and different about what you went to bed with...just learning something simple never hurt anyone!!!!

If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself~~My friend again with the truth and honesty issues...believe that somewhere inside him he couldnt be truthful and honest at one point in time...so he hates...strongly dislikes...call it whatever....that part of him...so he believes that as long as he carries it around...he will attract the same....not the best concept...but i can see where he is coming from!

To live is the rarest thing in the world Most people exist, that is all~~ i could go on forever about the existence....and living....they are not really the same looking deeply....as a whole...or in general...i would say there is a very fine line that separates the two!!

Love doesn't sit there like a stone, it has to be made, like bread: remade all the time, made new~ in the bakery the cashier had a love of bread...she thought love is bread...her explanation:
once out of the oven...hot, fresh, just perfect....after a while still sorta fresh...not as perfect but still good...then rotten...stale...with fungus growing....just everything bad about it....in relations to love...you have many loaves of bread...your heart....once one love runs out ...you can make more....if you have a lasting bread...(love) hold on to it..cherish it and take care of it.....if your love has been stale..rotten...get rid of it and start again...just be more careful not too have too much or too little!!!

i guess i could have did this in one post...when i saw it after it was done...i knew i would have to have an explanation!!!!

live more, laugh often, love much
