Things That Make You Go Hmm...

Lest you be thrown off track, this entry has got nothing to do with charts nor with trading. It's also something to keep things light.

This is just something that's always been running through my head for some time now. Don't you get amazed with how man is able to come up with so many adages that it's come around full circle that he already contradicts himself?

Case in point, you've always heard the saying, "practice makes perfect". You've also heard the saying, "nobody's perfect". So what's the point of me practicing when there's absolutely no chance that I'll ever be perfect?

I'm sure that during the Christmas season, we've always heard people saying, "'Tis better to give than to receive". I'm sure professional boxers and wrestlers would agree with that saying. There's also the other saying, "Give till it hurts". That one must probably come from the taxman. Put the two together, and it'll really make you think twice.

One of the sayings I like comes from Bill Cosby, "A word to the wise ain't necessary -- it's the stupid ones that need the advice." How true...

hmmm indeed! we can also try:

everyone is beautiful in the eyes of the Lord. yet we also know that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. we are all human after all, so does that mean walang maganda sa mundo?? :p

It could be worse, someone produces a beauty contest and nobody wins.
