A Serious Subject

There are no serious subjects, only people who take themselves too seriously.

  1. I agree with not taking yourself too seriously. But I believe some subjects are important.

  2. Ha ha! There are probably a FEW serious subjects out there, but the number of people who take themselves too seriously far outweigh them. Love it!!

  3. With our myopic visions, we can see only so far, and no more. It always feels great to lighten up oneself, in the grand scheme of things.

  4. Very neat, if perhaps a little trite, and quite not profound enough!

  5. That's very true,

    Let's "Live Life Light; Live Like Light"

  6. I know some people that the mention of some subjects will cause them to tense up and be borderline enraged....some people take themselves too seriously indeed.

  7. There are some serious subjects that are no laughing matter, but I agree that some people take themselves much too seriously. It's good to remember to lighten up:)

  9. Thanks Marty for considering my blog worthy of your aphorism.

    Thanks again

  10. It's subjective as always. I lean towards lightness even when I'm heavy.

  11. For perspective on a subject, or yourself, ask:
    What will it matter in a hundred years?

    I totally agree with the aphorism.

  12. What is cleverer, a man or a bogy? A man, because a bogey is just green and icky but a man can think it's so.

  15. Marty, thanks for the sweet comments on my post. "Bad Moon Rising" is for sale, if you are interested. It is surprisingly inexpensive, too.

    When I get tired and overworked, I find that I start taking myself way too seriously. I needed this aphorism today. Thank you.

  16. I'm definitely NOT one of those. ;-)

  17. I like this aphorism, it is a little "tricky", because you must take things serious because it is the best way to do a good job and it is because can be you a perfeccionist but the aphorism sounds like vanity is around you, man can be humble but I think he must be serious without losing fun of course, taking things like fun in order to perfection. Thank you for the visit. Visit my blog more frecuently, my friend! Hugs! Mario.
