My daily aphorisms. Reflections on life, death, beauty, change, love, happiness, etc., written in a poetic and whimsical style.
He who speaks the loudest is usually the most unsure.
I thought it was pretending not see what is happening around us.
Ha - I got a laugh out of that one. So true. especially of politicians and weathermen :)
True, knowledge is exhaustive...and with our limited ability its only possible to scratch the surface :)
Seems true to me as well.Best Wishes!
and bragging about it!
If all the-know-it-alls in the world had a conference, would it trigger WW III ;-)
I like this one. As a knowledge-lover I had lots of re-thinking over, it seems to be an bottomless black hole.
. . . and worst is, these humankind fight tooth and nail to insist they know!
What we don't know is perhaps best for us not to know. We are basically an insecure species striving to know it all. Our insecurity drives us to seek out pseudo-answers we can rationalize and justify. Our fear of death and the unknown is strong. The desire to have all the answers to all of the mysteries of life and death and then defend positions built on imperfect knowledge is also strong.
and bragging about it.
It takes someone who is honest and humble enough to admit that he does not know everything. There is nothing wrong with having to look for the correct answer rather than guessing or making something up.Another thought:Most religions pretend to know all the answers about God. Some would even kill for something they know little or nothing about.
i can't agree with this, as I obviously know better than that.
Amen! You really nailed it on the head, NP.
simply accurate...people who think they know everything know so little
Good one. Once I realized how little I knew ( or how little I could get away with...) I decided to use this smidgeon of knowledge to realize how fortunate I really was to have been born in this time, country, and culture. It worked.
Truthful words...Thanks for sharing.
AND pretending to NOT know what it Does.
Why are we driven to do it? What do we lose by doing it? What do we gain - safety from the dark?
Oh, Marty, once again you are so right!
