Expresially for you: more profound expressions in English

Conventionality is not morality.

This expression was first said by English author Charlotte Bronte. What it means is that just because everyone is “doing it,” or might be doing it, or “it” might be “cool, hip, or popular,” -- NONE of this automatically means that “it” is right.

As with every decision or action, it must be taken or measured on its own validity, or lack of.

To care enough for anyone else, to make their problems one’s own, is always the beginning of one’s real ethical development.

This expression means that when you put people first, this is the first step in developing one’s sense of ethics in order to serve the greater good of humanity in positive ways, and for the better.

If you are a self-centered person, always thinking of yourself and no one else, you’re not going to get far in this life. People need each other, and we need each other to be successful.

A real friend is someone you think of when you do NOT need something.

This is another great expression, and it is profoundly true.

Many people call their “friends” when they need or want something, or need help in some sort of crisis.

Ask yourself this question: would YOU like it if someone only contacted you when they wanted something?

Real friends are real friends, they should be kept in one’s heart at all times.

       Joke of the Day: Cowboy Wisdom

1. If you’re ridin’ at the head of the herd, take a look back occasionally to see if it is still following behind you.

2. If you decide to throw your weight around, be prepared for someone else to try and throw their weight around also.

3. There are two theories when it comes to arguing with a woman, and NEITHER of them work!

4. Never drop your gun to hug a grizzly bear.

5. Experience: What you get when you don’t get what you want!

6. Never ask a barber if he thinks you need a haircut.
