A second chance needs a first mistake.
Are we smarter the first attempt or the second? Instinct lost for wisdom gained?
Like the calculator made the abacus dumb
we’re faster now, but are we any smarter?
Same numbers, same equations, one times two bottles of wine equals intoxication.
Are we the inebriation of what we’ve drunk, or, the hangover?
The baby needs to touch the element once to know it’s hot.
Twice and the baby’s a fool.
Never and the baby never knows, the mind never grows.
If you could get everything out of life with a flick of a wish, would you make it?
Why wouldn’t you?
How couldn’t you?
Who buys a lottery ticket hoping to lose?
Yesterday’s wisdom is today’s common sense.
The first man to get hit by a car crossing the street
taught the rest of us to look both ways.
Marry in haste repent in leisure
written by a man who saw too much too soon
and not enough later.
We’re all smarter than we know we know
though we did not knowingly grow the bodies we grew
which means we’re dumber than we don’t know we know
you know though you just didn’t know how you knew.
