My daily aphorisms. Reflections on life, death, beauty, change, love, happiness, etc., written in a poetic and whimsical style.
Everyone has a bit of someone else in them because of our experiences with other people. It is interesting because all have different levels of commonality. There is no one identically like us but there may be someone who is like us. Good perspective.
Probably so because of our unique experiences and the unique ways we interpret them...
An interesting idea for sure. I'm off to consider it in greater depth. :)
I was contemplating something related to this on a long train trip this morning. I was thinking about the individual "vs." the group and self-interest vs. "for the greater good" (the latter of which I must confess I cringe to write). We are interconnected with people in so many ways, we require social networks to grow as an individual, to develop into a functioning human being... in a way I think we are only able to be unique because of the people and minds that influence us...this said, I think your aphorism highlights what I have just written and so much more in so fewer words...great work!
Marc said everyone has a bit of someone else in them. he he
i think earth has beard a few of such kind ,who were or are really unique .
Uniquely, what this afhorism says is "uncommonly good pie!"
Nice twist... if we are unique then we have that in common. I also like the idea expressed above that all we have part of those we interact with as a part of us.
In a way, 'It's not what you say, it's how you say it...' so the way we interpret things also makes us different and unique...
The sad thing is often that uniqueness is mocked by our peers and the ones we love.
Hmm, I would probably put it this way "What we have in common are building blocks of our uniqueness." Like 0 and 1 of any computer program, like yin and yang in I-Ching. Or like Nothing profound means Something profound. Like me saying something means me saying nothing...:):)
Nice blog friend!
Beautifully said - such a Profound thought "What we have in common is also part of our uniqueness" - Hopefully we get to accept it soon
Rod and I are starting to talk alike. Is this what we have in common? If so, I want him to stop talking like me. I want to be unique!!
(: everytime we find common factors with someone else, we learn something new about ourselves :)
hmmm... very profound. I'll have to think about this one a while.
