Wise Men Reworded

photo by Kenny Louie

Many people do live by the words of others. However, words are and always will be simply that: words. They can be interpreted, misinterpreted and reinterpreted. These words can be rewritten by those who want to pave a new path, building on the foundations of the wise before them.

The words of another person may not be tailor fitted to your life and you will therefore sometimes have to adapt them and then reapply them. Even the words I have chosen to represent myself can be built on by me, the one who uses them to illustrate what he believes. I've chosen the words that I subscribed to and I've made them my own. Adding my own thoughts and a little humour.

"If you love something you have to let it go, if it comes back it's yours, if it doesn't it never was. What if it does come back but you no longer love it?"

"The early bird gets the worm, the second mouse gets the cheese, but the third wheel just sits there, awkwardly."

"The heart hath reason that reason doesn't understand but sadly my reason lacks the heart to defy its own understanding."

"Both optimists and pessimists contribute to our society. The optimist invents the airplane and the pessimist the parachute. Realists however, contribute most because they probably have an actual day job."

"If you want to be understood, listen. That's why a man is already halfway in love with any woman who listens to him; He understands her."

"Sometimes when nobody has your back you need to move your back. However, letting someone you know plays with knives have your back defeats the purpose of moving it"

"'Love' is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own... Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition. The immature mind often mistakes one for the other, or assumes that the greater the love, the greater the jealousy. To have happiness in love though, you must by the given definition be also 'loved' by the one who you love."

How would you reword your favourite quote making your own?
