A couple of days ago, when I was whingeing about politicians, I quoted the saying about how it's difficult to "fly with eagles, when turkeys are in charge". Not sure if that's the correct saying, but it seems right somehow. Several years ago, when I was teaching in a school with an ineffectual and oft-times inebriated principal in charge, I put up a poster in the staff room with a similar message. It hit the mark, you could say, and I was in quite a bit of hot water for many weeks. However, my point was made and it still amazes me that the person to whom this otherwise almost innocuous startement was directed, immediately saw that it was him to whom it was aimed!
Today I came across another saying that I love. It's "A tiger doesn't lose sleep over the opinions of sheep." Isn't that great? I mean, it's not supposed to make you feel superior (I don't think!), but it's to help you be strong enough not to worry about what others think of you. The only thing wrong with this statement is the fact that I quite like sheep...real sheep, that is. But, then again, thay are not aware of this saying and what it implies. Blissful unawareness! Wonderful! That's anothe sort of sheep.
I choose to comment on social issues and write creatively on a variety of subjects - for a variety of audiences.
