All Sorts of Stuff

You read all sorts of stuff on the internet and in books, and people tell you a whole bunch of other stuff too. Don’t believe any of it unless it agrees with you.

For instance, I just read this:

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength. Loving someone deeply gives you courage.

Lao Tzu

Sounds nice, doesn’t it? I mean, we could all do with a lot more love, strength and courage in our lives and so following this simple dictum sounds like a win-win, right?

But here’s the thing: I can’t square this snippet of wisdom with my own personal experience, and, apart from that, it doesn’t even make logical sense to me. I mean, sure, this Lao Tzu dude has the reputation of being wise, but what if he was just having a bad day when he wrote that!

I’ll not burden you any more with my own dubious wisdom but just to say this: think about stuff before you take it on board. Make sure it’s right for you. And if it’s not – turn the page and keep reading.

That’s all. Have a great day.
