  1. YAY!! I am the first one to comment! Hi Mart, I love this one, you're saying that whatever it is that people say, you gotta learn and experience life yourself. Not from stories, but from first-hand experience.

    Have a beautiful day, wise rebel!

  2. When one has one's neck inside the marmalade jar, it is easy to forget that there is a world outside of marmalade.

  3. Great one NP!

    In our life there are so many unknown things to be discovered - it's up to us to venture out and find out for ourselves. :)

  7. Great one - have written it onto a post-it-note and put it on our kitchen board - next to the one that states "The map is not the territory"

  14. The view can be so different, depending on where you stand--so the world to one may be very different to the next. We are all so unique, we all experience things in our own unique way.

  15. I believe you have come to the correct conclusion with your following Aphorism Of The Day.

    PS Watch your back!

  17. It's amazing how many unquestioned assumptions are at the foundation of our everyday actions. I have always assumed that I am me...but is there even a "me", or is this an unquestioned belief and nothing more? Thank you for questioning the unquestioned "obvious" in this aphorism n.p.

  18. Actually the world is shaped like a very narrow bridge.
