“Quote of the Day By Someone Who’s Smarter Than I Am, But Who Has, On Occasion, Been Known To Think Along the Same Lines”

William James Quotation Number Four:

The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook.

Married people: Pay special attention.

You certainly do get up early. You must be overlooking sleep. Or you have a paper route.

I hope you don't mind if I put one of these on
my Facebook, Mr. Pomerantz! I will credit you!
Love reading your blog!

This is really a good one. I think that there's a lot of truth in it. Sometimes we give too much weight to things that aren't really a problem.

But in the real world - sometimes - you try to overlook and you hear suddenly a voice in your mind saying: "come on... look... look better into it... you see... did you see that... the behavior of that individual is even more irritating than you thought" :-)


Enjoy your holiday, Mr. Pomerantz.
