Nutshell philosophy

I read a bumper sticker once that said, "A philosophy that fits in a nutshell should stay there." (Yeah, I know...funny, right? I still chuckle about it.)

And there ya have it...the current target of my grief-induced anger...

Don't wrap it all up in a neat little bow. Don't give me a "nugget of wisdom" that is supposed to make me think. Don't spew some one-liner from an insprational poster. Don't, for the sake of my sanity, act like you've got it ALL figured out. The secret of life is just that...a secret.

So please...just don't.

LOL rach! I had to google for a particularly annoying one: It takes but one positive thought when given a chance to survive and thrive to overpower an entire army of negative thoughts. Robert H. Schuller

very few things annoy me as much as Robert Schuller's positive thinking balderdash....especially since i had to hear it all the time growing up, my dad was/is a big fan.

Oh come now. Everything happens for a reason. Or, at least gets said for a reason, like the speaker is annoying.

No nutshells from me. I don't understand anything.
