Sincerity is Innocence all grown up.

This is  the start of a series of older quotes from an earlier part of my life. I found a cache of quotes from a long-forgotten, pre-blog era. I'm labeling them 'Old Quotes'

This is the first of my long list of struggles trying to make sense of this world. People almost never mean what they say, or worse never say anything at all but then just create in their minds what your reactions will be and react to that. How can you defend yourself against what people who make up what they think you'll say? You didn't say it and you didn't even think of it in the first place. But that is their perception. Do you deal with that? Or can you choose to not deal with them at all?

A great master begins with the mastery of one

Sort of the opposite of the phrase, "jack of all trades, master of none."

People who don't want to try something because they are afraid they are not good at it, will always wait. But when is someone good at it the first time, all the time?
So try. Be good at it. Repeat.

Want less, fulfilled sooner

Why is it the more we crave, the less content we feel? Everywhere around us, everything tells us to ask for more, aim higher and get more stuff. But does stuff actually fills that hole? Or does it just make it feel deeper, more space to stuff things in. If fulfillment is what we seek, maybe we should do the logical thing. What is shorter than a straight line between two points? A shorter line. So maybe we should stop along the way to that second point. Make more points. Make a shorter line. In short, want less. If we want less, it's likely we can get what we want sooner. Be satisfied sooner. Fulfilled earlier.  And because we are human, we will want more later. Another point along they way. And another. And another. till we reach the other point.

Idiots must understand the difference between being righteous and being right.

Being righteous sometime means being wrong sometime, too. Being right means you are right all the time. Being Right doesn't mean you are right, just as being Left doesn't mean you're wrong.Being a right Idiot means being right. Being a Right Idiot means your twice it An idiot doesn't know how they got it right. An righteous idiot doesn't know how.
