Guardian.UK: Want to imbibe wisdom by accident?

OK, but please understand they are the ‘snacks’ of wisdom. Short, easy to post and read. And then most of us move on, without any depth of thought. So many are posting mediocre images and tacking quotes on. It’s clichè turned to 11 now.

I have seen the same aphorism used to justify opposite opinions.
Like tasting menus, they should lead to further meals, not a diet.

In some cases, it’s a great big “f-you, I just want to never change my thought or behavior.”

In other words, in the world of the internet, you can find a plethora of quotes, articles to back up just about any opinion and fool yourself into thinking ‘I’m wise’.

I suppose that’s why I blog. My readers zoom in and remind me, “Hey, you idiot, did you never see ... ?”

Invaluable to keep things real.
