"By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest." - Confucius
"Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect." - Mark Twain
"Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens" - Jimi Hendrix
I am well aware that I come off as someone that is being aloof: independent - in need of no one. And much of this is true. I have few friends. It is very hard to determine if this is by choice or because I am socially challenged. I admit that I view much of what others may value as a dried up tit. Its time to leave the litter and fend for myself. The others can continue to smell around in search of what is just not there!
I suppose that because of this no one will ever seek me out as a long lost friend on Facebook.
People are known to be social animals. Community is good. Friends and family are important. And I am not a loner. But what I find true, as someone who is not a mechanic, I am not a complete idiot either. I work hard at keeping my little Ghia operating properly. Some guys (and girls) are just born with mechanical ability and intuition. I'm not talking about them. But we all have come to detest most mechanics that we know almost as much as we do lawyers and politicians. When they talk to us they do so usually with one hand in our pocket.
There is, all around us, a Machiavellian world that is truly void of everything that it claims to contain. It is like a dance. Some can dance the dance while I sit and study the moves. 1-2-3-4- / 1-2-3-4 / 1-2-3-4........
The truth is, I would rather dance but I have two left feet.
