The Flea

The flea that doubts doesn't jump nearly as high.

  1. Good point! Makes me think of Batmas escape from prison in the last movie. You can fly with a rope around your waist!

  4. Perhaps we could extend this truth past the insect kingdom? :) Although - perhaps the flea that knows a good thing when he sees it has no need to jump anywhere... Just playing with the idea a bit!

  5. So true! How fascinating to use the flea in your aphorism. I’ve known some fleas who were pretty high jumpers, they must have been very confident little buggers!

  6. Enjoyed this NP. Got me thinking about how we gradually give up trying by not aiming as high as we use to.

  7. Its always true. I always enjoy a cat trying to jump between objects, and if you watch their eyes, and they doubt they can do it, more often than not, they fall just a tad short.

  8. Makes me think the high-jumpers don't see themselves as "just fleas." They see just sky and possibility.

  9. No sense of limitations, no hesitation, just jumping right in (or up). That's what life's all about, isn't it? This spirited little flea is onto something! (and I don't mean the family pet) :-D

  11. Is it simple to assemble and take apart. Take your time and pick the best juice extractor that will
    suit your needs and enjoy the quality of juice it gives you.

    With its modern styling and range of attractive colours, the Oscar Vital - Max won.

  15. It reminds me of the quote from the Dali Lama,

    "If you think that you are too insignificant to make a difference in the world, you haven't slept with a mosquito"

  16. That is so true and pithy. I guess doubt and achieving are inversely related.
