"Nothing in the affairs of men is worthy of great anxiety. "
— Plato

I guess he didn't have global warming, nuclear arms of overpopulation back then.

montyb on 2012-05-25 22:51:32
Not to mention losing your cable during "Eureka".

Lily H on 2012-08-04 19:38:03
Or losing your internet connection while in the middle of solving a cryptogram.

bvwRedux on 2012-11-29 23:11:00
And we don't have global warming or overpopulation either. But there is a awful lot of anxiety about them. Plato was right.

chopstix on 2013-02-13 15:32:22
I've been told it's quite pleasant to hide your head in the sand.

ShazOfOz on 2013-07-25 09:05:27
Earth's flat, is it redux?

LLapp on 2015-11-21 12:26:33
No overpopulation? Take a plane flight over America, coast to coast, and look down the whole time, and tell me we don't look like ant colonies that have taken over your backyard.

oddcouple on 2016-01-22 01:40:03
That's easy to say. But it's natural to be anxious when you aren't sure if you wonder if your job is in jeopardy.

marnita on 2016-05-06 16:29:41
bvwRedux is enough to make me anxious.

"I believe in the incomprehensibility of God."
— Honore de Balzac

maradnu on 2009-03-26 22:06:26
I believe in the incomprehensibility of Balzac.

fishbum on 2011-05-20 19:24:00
How would text "incomprehensibility"?

wvwoman on 2012-09-21 21:27:03
i wouldn't!

puzzleme on 2013-05-14 06:02:08
How about "??"

JD_1947 on 2014-11-24 12:24:53
. . I just texted my daughter a message . . . "I went to the doctor today and I have 'incomprehensibility'" . . . she texted back . . . 'WHAT???' . . .

abra on 2015-05-15 13:45:32
Well, I don't believe in the incomprehensiblity of YOU.

IlLatino on 2015-10-11 16:54:50
Way to go, Honore, that stinking word has 19 letters in it.

"If I advance, follow me! If I retreat, kill me! If I die, avenge me! "
— Francois de la Rochefoucauld

Barnabas on 2012-02-29 04:46:31
If I put my left foot in... put your left foot in. If I shake it all about... shake it all about.

kb83 on 2014-03-31 04:37:04
(...avenge me-- Unless, of course, I die because you killed me retreating.)

"He who has never envied the vegetable has missed the human drama."
— E.M. Cioran

Well, I hath lusted after the young asparagus stalk. Doth that count?

universalmom on 2012-07-18 05:40:33
Okay, what on earth does envying a vegetable mean??

Queethebean on 2012-08-08 23:08:11
I guess one's life could be so chaotic that one might wish one were a zucchini.

Allen on 2013-12-12 03:34:08
I envy vegetables--they're so grounded!

cindidido on 2014-03-17 02:57:34
LOL, Allen!

Prezkot on 2014-04-28 15:07:15
Lettuce give thanks for the human drama

"Nothing can resist the human will that will stake even its existence on its stated purpose. "
— Benjamin Disraeli

bansaisequoia on 2011-01-30 07:20:08
The Hunan will does not work with this quote, but it is an excellent school of Chinese cuisine.

montyb on 2014-01-01 10:23:21
I can't resist the Hunan will.

aussienl on 2014-09-10 10:49:43
It's only Hunan.

dovid1946 on 2014-12-14 16:57:02
It has been said that when Prime Minister Disraeli would travel abroad, Queen Victoria became rather lonely for him and used to lament 'Won't you come home, Disraeli, won't you come home'

JD_1947 on 2014-12-17 14:27:14
. . and I'd stake my life on it . . .

puzzleme on 2015-07-28 16:12:28
Love it, dovid

God loves each of us as if there were only one of us."
— Saint Augustine

a little bit on 2013-01-17 17:16:47
I'm so very grateful that God loves me exactly the way he created me!! It's a testament to how much God loves us by seeing us through his eyes. He even knows how many strands of hair are on our heads!!!

Hash on 2013-08-23 00:01:02
If you will hold still long enough I will know how many strands of hair are on your head.

montyb on 2013-12-26 03:07:34
My strands are dropping like flies.

Allen on 2014-06-11 03:10:57
There’s only one of me! How many are there of you?

ruxpin66 on 2016-01-02 01:39:29
If God loved us exactly how he created us (sinner), he wouldn't make us go through all kinds of BS hoops to go to heaven.

LLapp on 2016-01-08 21:02:23
Don't confuse religion with God.

"To a philosopher all news, as it is called, is gossip, and they who edit and read it are old women over their tea."
— Henry David Thoreau

kb83 on 2014-05-08 11:31:13
And to a news reporter, all philosophy, as it is called, is armchair platitudes, and its purveyors and admirers are old men over their cigars.

LLapp on 2015-03-26 06:12:15
"Old women" = silly, weak, useless, vain people who worry over trifles. That stereotype has been around forever, and I hereby declare it dead.
