Useless opinions

Tearing someone else down does not build you up. It merely shreds any sense of decency you thought you had. Those who indulge in such things stake their claim to the bottom of the barrel.

If a person disagrees with you, it does not make them the enemy. They have a different perspective, and you might be able to learn from it. At least you can see where they have been led astray.

Do not be quick to think you are right. People tend to extol their useless opinions. Be the first to question your beliefs, and you will be better prepared to defend them.

What most people think is usually wrong. Crowds have a tendency to muddle everything. Too many voices, and nothing can be heard.

Sometimes it is best to just stop talking. Silence is golden, especially when there is nothing nice to say. Listening is preferable to yelling any day.

A discussion becomes an argument when the topic gives way to the contending egos. If this continues, serious harm could be done. Better to let it go, before you speak the words you will regret.


  1. We live in a world darkness where all of us are stumbling so let none of us claim "I see." Let us instead admit that we are groping.

  2. Human beings do not know everything. So much of what they think they know is suspect. So, there is no use relying on knowledge...

  3. Interesting the day i read this. I have a dire prediction. We are about to go to war over this, and it will turn bloody by the end of it.

  4. People have been at each other's throats ever since they first set foot on this planet. That is not going to change, but the balance of power is being lost. Something has to give way eventually.
