Everything and Nothing

  1. Baffling. Love the title of the post, by the way (hmm … I wonder why? πŸ˜‰).
    Maybe the quote is referring to everything and nothing being abstract concepts that don’t evoke any interest, whereas specific things are concrete and have the capacity to trigger our emotions?

    • Yeah, I’ve been reading it over and over and I’ve tentatively come to the conclusion that it means that people like what they like more than they like … other stuff. Which is a bit naff when you think about it. πŸ˜‰


      • wAiT!! There’s a comma there. That means that the meaning has changed (for me). The first thing is – people get bored of absolutely eVeRyThiNg. And the second thing is that out of all those things, they get bored of their favourite things first. Is that what you meant, Irene? πŸ™‚
