When you really think about, which I have, obviously, some proverbs/sayings/adages/inspirational sentences don’t make any sense
Take for example this one : Shoot for the moon and if you miss, you’ll land among the stars,
This is either really terrible advice or a really roundabout way of saying don’t do much, hope to miss and then expect to get everything.
Looking at this scientifically/logically and through the eyes of Common Sense, The Moon is closer than the stars, so if you shoot for the moon and land on the stars, you’re going to be lost and very confused and on fire!
Lost like the football kicked by Sergio Ramos (they are still looking for it), and If you do land on the stars ( all the best to you), it’s not going to be great, because stars are essentially burning balls of gas.
What’s the use in that? Better stay on the Moon.
At least you can be rescued from there.
As years go by and as we watch more and more of Myth Busters, we need to revise our proverbs/sayings/adages/inspirational sentences to reflect the new age.
1. Shoot for the moon and if you miss, you’ll land On the International Space Station ( they have food, the Moon however doesn’t)
2. A watched pot on an unlit stove never boils ( Duh!)
3. All good things must be tweeted/fb-ed/instragrammed and pinned
4. You shouldn’t judge a book by its cover ( I can judge you by your cover, but I shouldn’t.. talking about books of course)
5. The grass is always greener everywhere else
6. If you want something done
right, you have to do delegate it like nobody’s business
7. A handsome shoe is expensive
8. Spare the rod and spoil the Child and the family Name ( Asian Law )
8. He who laughs last, didn’t get the Joke
10. Confess and be regarded suspiciously
That is all.
Here’s to spare time and intelligent inspiration
