"Since my earliest childhood a barb of sorrow has lodged in my heart. As long as it stays I am ironic - if it is pulled out I shall die." — Soren Kierkegaard

This one is too deep for me.

Queethebean on 2012-07-15 18:36:33
I guess someone must have pulled his barb.

skoogie2 on 2014-08-16 03:00:15
I was with him until the part about pulling it out and he'd die. I don't get that part.

darkyr on 2016-07-25 05:39:07
If you have difficulty understanding Kierkegaard, look at some work by Picasso. At least then you will have something to look at that is just as confusing.

Default Variations on a typo

(It turns out that "Narda" is a typo -- it should be "Narada," which was the name of a Vedic sage famous in Hindu traditions as a traveling musician and storyteller. But that's not important now.)

"Never utter these words: 'I do not know this, therefore it is false.' One must study to know, know to understand, and understand to judge." — Apothegm of Narda

puffybob on 2010-09-22 02:57:23
I was wondering when they were going to quote the Apothegm of Narda.

wvwoman on 2012-07-29 23:55:45
who, or what, is it??

Allen on 2013-01-19 23:38:34
WV: that is the question!

lainie18 on 2013-03-25 03:14:19
I love a good apothegm.

marnita on 2016-05-08 11:20:19
Who or what is Narda?

SippyGurl on 2017-08-18 21:43:20
narda you business

kb83 on 2017-12-14 03:35:14
There was an apothegm of Narda. The pathway of knowledge is harda, One must study to know, To learn and to grow, Don't just act like you're any smarda.

"A careful inventory of all your past experiences may disclose the startling fact that everything has happened for the best. "

Try to tell that to the survivors of torture and concentration camps.

To quote Jack Nicholson's character in "As Good As It Gets": "Sell crazy someplace else. We're all stocked up here!"

Key word here is "may".

So we might as well be happy.

universalmom on 2014-02-14 03:55:40
Good quote, JCC!

wvwoman on 2015-11-06 02:11:51
thanks for the reminder of that quote, jcarlos--that was the best line from that great movie!

LLapp on 2016-08-19 07:17:36
Anytime I see a statement like this, I think of people who have lost a child to illness, suicide, car crash, gunshot, overdose, etc. There is no way to view the loss of a beloved young person as "for the best."

CCCookie on 2017-02-02 05:26:15
I'm sorry -- the key word here is "everything" -- I can't think of an older adult I know who would find this statement true. It's difficult for me to imagine, for instance, how a diagnosis of cancer or the death of a beloved spouse could "work out for the best". Give me a break. Sometimes the loss of a "good" job can work out for the best, but there are too many things that happen in life that just don't work that way. One learns to have a good life after cancer or in spite of cancer, and one can live a good life after the death of ones beloved, but that doesn't mean it has worked out for the best.

NotTooOld on 2017-06-02 13:09:03
After all, this was only said by Unattributed. What do they know?

tjsrc on 2015-02-13 06:24:14
People like to say cats can see ghosts.. Because they like to stare off into space for hours.. But most of the time they're just staring at the wall.. and I think they are just spacing out rather than seeing "something."

skeeter on 2015-07-26 16:42:59
Maybe they're just catatonic.

"You will never be alone with a poet in your pocket."
— John Adams


fredsevent on 2012-04-16 21:05:04
Dude had big pockets or perhaps they just grew small poets back then.

abra on 2013-07-07 21:06:32
Kind of strange.

dmford60 on 2014-03-01 19:36:44
I think it's kind of a neat thought, carrying a book of poetry with you to keep you company.

universalmom on 2014-09-24 04:46:05
hahaha i pictured some poor little guy screaming something like "grant me thy fair egress from this foul, unvented confinement!"

ericthirdrow on 2014-10-13 07:54:44
Is that a poet in your pocket or are you just happy to have some alone time?

Writeon on 2018-01-18 11:08:00
Ring around the roses,
A pocket full of poets
Ashes, ashes,
Shouldn’t have put that cigarette in there.
