That, that, that.

Poor Sigmund would never have been successful in this age of sound bites.
"How many people make themselves abstract to appear profound. The most useful part of abstract terms are the shadows they create to hide a vacuum. "
— Joseph Joubert
saipanwriter on 2012-05-22 23:58:28
Can there be shadows in a vacuum?
Lurker on 2012-10-16 21:24:39
Sure, if there's light. Just no echoes.

And they will make your blood boil...
montyb on 2013-09-10 14:26:49
Shadows hiding a vacuum is pretty darned abstract.
SolarFlare on 2014-02-20 14:43:12
How many people fail to see the play of creativity underlying the expression of abstraction because they feel intimidated by it?
ericthirdrow on 2014-09-24 07:18:19
I picture massive cardboard cutouts of "abstract terms" casting a shadow that's conveniently hiding a Dyson vacuum cleaner.
BrainCellKeeper on 2014-11-11 14:18:23
How many people read this quote and feel confused because they don't understand what it means?
LLapp on 2015-05-20 17:08:38
ericthirdrow - you made me laugh out loud.
abra on 2015-09-30 13:22:23
I think the answer to the first sentence is many. ericthirdrow (who's name makes me smile) has covered the second sentence. He cut right through all that abstract profundity.
"It is better to light one small candle than to curse the darkness. "
maradnu on 2009-06-26 01:35:51
But it is more fun to curse.
fredsevent on 2012-04-18 04:53:39
Why not do both?
kb83 on 2014-07-02 09:42:59
Or at least curse the candle if you get burned in the process.

Are we sure this was Confucius?

Thought this was Emily Dickinson. Time to Google.
Marnita's response cracks me up

I agree with kjmcaj.
marnita on 2016-04-04 12:58:30
I don't care what either of you think.

As a cat owner I totally agree

You can try, but it always ends with "FLUFFY KITTY KITTY PURR PURR WHO'S A LITTLE CUTIE DEMON YES CAT. CAT."

I have had the unfortunate experience of hearing myself talk about my cat...it...sounded...crazy....

Preposterous! Absolute blatherskite!
locodad on 2012-12-24 13:41:53
I don't think they are , because I don't what that means, so maybe they are right maybe I am not a polysyllable person. By the way, can you say polysyllable ten times without making a mistake/
nehiyawiskwewniya on 2013-06-02 16:31:13

polysyllable is a polysyllable!

Actualy, this time I agree with Babs. It must have been some night, Allen. :)
"The master's eye is the best fertilizer. "

Seems like I've been using the wrong part of the cow for my garden...
maradnu on 2013-12-13 08:48:57
Sounds like a load of fertilizer to me.
beerfan95 on 2014-02-17 12:38:35
It took me longer to figure out "master's" then it took me to figure out "fertilizer"
universalmom on 2014-07-10 11:27:58
abra on 2014-08-01 10:55:31
I had Oyster's eye, do they even have eyes? Once I changed it to MASTER's it became easier. Still took 200 seconds. Only 192 more than the record.
universalmom on 2014-08-23 04:17:11
Haha abra, oyster's eye - that was my giggle for the day!
LLapp on 2015-03-25 16:25:26
This quote is gruesome! I say let the garden go and spare the master's eyeball.
fishbum on 2015-06-16 09:06:00
Consider he is not talking about a garden.
