here's some to get you started:

"Competitiveness is ashamed of honesty"

"a feeling expressed is a feeling freed from"

“If you are afraid of love, then your fear will only ever turn into despair”

@existential potential,
I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly dreaming I am a man.

Words of a drunken philosopher makes poor wisdom.

Competetiveness can have honor, but are easily destroyed when medals and money comes to play.

One/we expresses our feelings when we are not shy, desperate or overly emotonal, being in love or angry ..maybe to compliment a posetive or negative situation.

Few are afraid of love, and only mentally ill may have their feelings turn into despair.

@HexHammer,
I said honesty, not honour, you fool.

"few are afraid of love"- your point?

"and only mentally ill may have their feelings turn into despair"- despair is not a feeling exclusive to "mental illness", anyone can experience despair, regardless of whether they are mentally ill.

can you try to avoid making oafish and uninformed responses please?

@HexHammer,
Honesty and honour are two different things, but you don't seem to understand this. Honesty is about being truthful and sincere, honour about having respect, or when something is a privilege.

even if your claim that "few are afraid of love" is true, it doesn't undermine what I said, it doesn't refute it at all.

where do you get the idea that despair is something only a "mentally ill" person can experience? this simply isn't true. you might as well be saying "if you ever experience hopelessness, your mentally ill", which obviously isn't true, becuase we all do experience these feelings from time to time.

you right, I don't know what your talking about, because you don't make any sense.

You have a very narrow and liniar interpetation of the words.

To be honest, one usually must have honor, else be in an immense pressurized situation where oppotunism is the motivating factor.

Mentailly sound people usually doesn't despair because they know despair will do no good, and usually only worsen the situation. Besides mentially sound people will try to find a solution instead of giving into despair.

@HexHammer,
I never mentioned honour, its was honesty I was talking about, honour at no point comes into this, it was your mistake to bring it up.

despair can be experienced by both "mentally sound" and "mentally ill" people.

I don't want to get into a discussion on this thread, I'd rather people just share their aphorisms, thats the point of this thread.
