i don't exactly remember where i learned the saying "more the fool" or even why i know it...... probably cause more than once in my life i have been a fool.. or been played for a fool.........
one of my great weaknesses is being naive.. and trusting... trusting to a fault. And i have learned the hard way that most people are not open and honest .... it is a difficult lesson for me to learn... and it would seem i am constantly having to relearn the lesson.
Anyone who reads my blog knows that i am an avid reader of blogs....... and god only knows why.... but i do tend to form attachments to these unknown writers out there in blogland. More the fool!!! i tend to write from the heart.... and anyone who knows me in the real world knows that i write who i am.. how i speak and how i feel..... and i tend to think / believe that others out there write the same way..... truth from the heart... More the fool !!!!
This morning early.. coffee in hand.. i loaded up the computer and sat down to read some blogs while i sipped my coffee. i opened up one of my favourite blogs to read that everything i have been enjoying for the last year or so has all been lies......
L I E S !
i sat there staring at the screen feeling very much like Alice through the Looking Glass.. not able to figure out what was truth and what was lies. i do NOT like being lied to. It tends to make me very cranky !!! i do not mind reading fiction when i know it is fiction....... especially if it is well written and catches and holds my attention.......... but do not feed me fiction disguised as truth.. that is just downright dishonest!!!
Another saying that has been whispering over and over in my mind today is:
