"I'll Never Understand..."

"I'll never understand why some people can't just let others live their lives, you know," Danial said. "You don't have to understand. You don't have to agree. Just leave people alone. When I look at the moon and planets and stars, all that narrow-mindedness and hate seem so petty. The universe is such a big place. One hundred thousand light years just from one end of the Milky Way to the other. One hundred. Thousand. Light years. In the time it's taken for light to travel from one end of our galaxy to the other, thousands of generations have passed. It really makes you realize how small we are, doesn't it? How short our time on earth is."
- J.H. Trumble

  1. The saying in my yute was "Mind your own beezwax!"

    Some people are just busybodies, nosy and domineering, if allowed.
    Those who take pride and bash others as insignificant because they are the Type A's of the world, are as bad as the hideous Hillary calling millions of Americans, her supposed fellow countrymen, deplorable and irredeemable.

    Aside from those who are very intelligent and get on with using their talents to the most of their ability, too many fall in the category of Dindu's and in their insecurity have to try to make themselves bigger by making others smaller.

    If anyone has ever contemplated the complexity of the human body, the diversity of life forms on planet earth, or the enormity of the heavenly expanse, then they have the beginnings of an appreciation for how small and insignificant one individual life can seem, especially when put into the calendar of history.
