Deft definitions & more

Here are some thoughts, some light, some not so light. Please feel free to add your own.

  • Politeness and manners should never be mistaken for weakness
  • Why be difficult, when with a little more effort, you can be impossible 🙂
  • Loud and abrasive behaviour is not a sign of strength
  • A doctor with an iota of compassion is a rare find and worth his weight in gold
  • Greed is an offspring of one’s upbringing
  • The family is one’s only last bastion
  • Repay malice with kindness, it confuses everyone 🙂
  • A mother-in-law is also a relative 🙂
  • Information is power
  • A friend is someone who accepts you on an as-is-where-is basis and doesn’t try to change you
  • Work is a four-letter word and should be removed from a child’s vocabulary
  • Bravery is not the absence of fear – that is stupidity
  • Education increases one’s capacity to look beyond oneself
  • Christmas while being the season of joy contains within it the seeds of Good Friday
  • The million dollar question should be ‘is there life after birth?’
  • A chameleon doesn’t change its colour, it only does so to blend in with its surroundings
  • The only thing regal about a lion is his inertia


  1. Dahlip, this is a wonderful list to keep in the pocket. One of my favorite is “Bravery is not the absence of fear, that is stupidity.”

    Thank you for sharing.

    • Hello again Frank!
      I had fun thinking these up. The mood went from naughty to nasty to nice. I still have plenty more to add. Feel free to add some of your own.
