My daily aphorisms. Reflections on life, death, beauty, change, love, happiness, etc., written in a poetic and whimsical style.
I know a company where people are good at this. They create problems then solve them, and congrat themselves for solving them.
very true!"if it aint broke; fix it till it is!"
Quilted versus non-quilted paper towels? Softer, quilted toilet paper sold by bears in the woods? Non-caffeinated, calorie free, water from New York water system in plastic, non-reusuable bottles? The list is endless...we are addicted to the useless, un-needed, solutions to non-existance needs. We call it modern life. Nice one, Marty.
True true and too true. Most of the time you ought to simply laugh at things instead of stressing over their answers.
Ha! Isn't that the truth--sometimes we get so caught up in the solution that we fail to see that none is needed. Life often works out its own problems far better than with our meddling.
Took me a while to catch up with this one ... glad I did ... lol very true
People inventing solutions for problems that never existed in the first place. Why go through all that trouble when everyday, the world faces serious problems? Why can't we have solutions for hunger, war, poverty? They're the problems that needs tackling.PS Thank you so much for your lovely message, NP. You're one of the first people who welcomed me to BC and of course, one the nicest. I'll never forget that. :)
Problems are often opportunities to challenge ones intelligence. However, solutions are generally short term in nature. We must always seek truth. Love is a good place to start. Great post Marty. You always get the idea ball rolling. Thank you.
Problems are challenges disguised as such for us to find the silver lining.And so, they make us stronger if we view them as an opportunity for growth and change.Or weaker...
You somehow have successfully detangled some lame knot of thoughts in my mind. Thanks Mart, and oh yeah of course you had to be the rebel then at the ripe age of 18. I could sniff that by just reading your aphorisms! =D
Very true some people do tend to try to fix what is not broken I guess it's one of those human character flaws that keeps life interesting. I'm more a go with the flow what will be will be kind of a person.
They try to mask the fact but if they do not hold water they will eventually drown in the flood of truth.
Some people try avoiding problems but it comes back haunting them eventually.
Marty, did I ever send you the picture of this quote posted on my cubicle?
True. If solutions are there a problem is not a problem any more.
