: : Flourishes of wit and tears satisfy you...and no one else.
: that's obvious. ask yourself: why do tears exist? there is NOTHING wrong with tears. they are natural.
+++So is courage and grace under fire...and what "fire" do you have to endure cutey...which position to try?
: you are trying to make the argument that tears => weakness.
++No, no. You are trying to PROVE it by getting hysterical every ten minutes. Immaturity is NOT sensitivity!
how original!!! rather: how "masculine" (how pathetic).
++Ain't a masculine bone in my body...and that isn't a bone either.
does context play any role in how you think of someone's tears? or are ALL tears evil?
+++Your tears are tawdry...you think because you burst into tears at the thought of a child suffering somewhere that it MUST be the plight of that child you bemoan rather than your own childhood that makes a pile of rumpled emotions you want to call "feminine". Real men and real women are just about identical in every human way...and DON'T get cute and vulgar!
should we all repress our emotions & try to be as stoic as possible for the sake of appearances? who is desiring fakery?
+++Your fan tods are not the last word in emotion. Falling apart periodically is not a sign that you are just too precious and sooooo emotional. Have a kid yerself or adopt one some day and see what emotions are...FOR SOMONE ELSE!
: you speak as though you ALWAYS write with intent.
+++I do, always. The fact that you ramble and gush and spurt makes me no mind. You think I play chess with all these dunderheads on all these forums and any more I could get on to and get kicked off of and come back again and again to is because I have NO intentions...just like to see my words in print?
sometimes this appears to be true... for all those "other" times: hindsight is 20/20
+++And you get a big fat zero for content and a 90 for effort.
(you interpret as if you had "intent" - i question whether or not this REALLY is the case).
+++Good...ask a whole lot of questions and don't pay tuition to the next idiot who offers you an answers from the back of his wagon.
: from Gibran's "The Madman" - my favorite work by him.
: When my sorrow was born I nursed it with care, and watched over it with loving tenderness.
: And my Sorrow grew like all living things, strong and beautiful and full of wondrous delights.
: And we loved one another, my Sorrow and I, and we loved the world about us; for Sorrow had a kindly heart and mine was kindly with Sorrow.
: Amd when we conversed, my Sorrow and I, our days were winged and our nights were girdled with dreams; for Sorrow had an eloquent tongue, and mine was eloquent with Sorrow.
: And when we sang together, my Sorrow and I, our neghbors sat at their windows and listenend; for our songs were deep as the sea and our melodies were full of strange memories.
: And when we walked together, my Sorrow and I, people gazed at us with gentle eyes and whispered in words of exceeding sweetness. And there were those who looked with envy upon us, for Sorrow was a noble thing and I was proud with Sorrow.
: But my Sorrow died, like all living things, and alone I am left to muse and ponder.
: And now when I speak my words fall heavily upon my ears.
: And when I sing my songs my neighbours come not to listen.
: And when I walk the streets no one looks at me.
: Only in my sleep I hear voices saying in pity, "See, there lies the man whose Sorrow is dead."
+++AlliMeBetyerass...you are doing it again. Gibran is none the worse for not being understood by you. Krishnamurti told all those flocking to him asking to be shown the way (tuition paid of course) that he had no "way" to show them...that anyone who did would be lying to them. All he could do was show them what HE had done.
So far, looking up a bugs ass when not flipping yours around, ain't no show.
