Just when you think….

Standard

I like to tell a joke about a maxim I live by. It goes something like this, “Just when you think you’ve seen someone demonstrate the pinnacle of human stupidity, someone, somewhere, will invariably go out of their way to prove you wrong.” Consider how dumb the average person is, then realize that half the planet is not as smart as that hypothetical individual.

Luckily I have discovered a maxim that prevents a person from dwelling on this and contemplating unfriendly ways to deal with humanity.

Consider that just when you have seen the ultimate expression of selflessness, compassion, and caring, someone, somewhere, will invariably go out of their way to prove you wrong.

That is such a wonderful thing to consider.

I do not very often think I have much figured out, but this I can say I am proud to write.
