  3. I never thought of it that way, but it makes sense that not following one's own heart would result in confusion and indecision. Nice aphorism, Marty!

  4. Marty, sometimes your aphorisms are like icebergs. They convey a hell of a lot of meaning under their visible deceptive tops.

  5. What about dealing with things like responsibilities? Those often fall under the category of "Ugh, I gotta this!" LOL! But I can see over all that doing something you want to do especially choosing your career for instance helps with knowing what to do.

  7. My unwavering belief in perfect paranoia means I know people are out to get me and I’m ready for that, so I shoot first!

  8. Good one, Marty, and I second what John M wrote above citing the Rolling Stones' song!

  9. Always makes me think hard. I guess the idea is to act on one's desires to get the desired results.
