30 SHARING A FEW THINGS I'VE LEARNT

  • Understanding is not agreeing
  • Acceptance does not mean consent
  • Knowing is not doing
  • Hearing is not the same as listening
  • Reading does not mean comprehension
  • Tolerance is not acceptance
  • Existing is not living
  • Potential is not reality, it is a hypostasis, a possibility of what may be “if” the stars were aligned perfectly.
  • Being wrong is not always a bad thing
  • Being right is not always a good thing
  • Everything is not always about right or wrong…sometimes it just IS
  • sipping on my daiquiri

Sipping on my daiquiri – Cheers, have a blessed week!

  2. Those are excellent! I completely agree with each one of them. I agree with your comment on my best friend’s grand baby. Isn’t she beautiful? She is tottering around walking some now.

    1. Ain't that the truth, life is a constant lesson, at times I am an great student at other times i am deliquent in my attentiveness and am forced to repeat the experience until I sit up take note and pay attention.

    1. Is it civilised? I don't know, I just think its must easier to move through life if you pay attention to the lessons in the journey along the way.

  5. FABZ,

    LOVE your philosophical aphorisms woven poetically into verse. i think it’s more subtle and profound on the surface than much other poetry you’ve shared on your blog—kudoes!

    may i add "writing is not communicating and "lust is not love" ? (not that they belong with your listed proverbs–your items possess a feeling of completeness all their own)

    1. its the truth, often when one is asked to accept someone or a situation they automatically assume it means to consent to or to agree to when i fact all it means is to accept a person or situation for what it is no more no less.

  16. In life, once we stop learning, we become stagnated in one spot and stop growing. I am a student of life as well, and don't think I will ever graduate, lol. Interesting lessons.
