        The high horse sometimes gets kicked in the knees.

        Thanks for your continued kindness.

          All are ultimately on their feet....better be on the ground.

          Btw, I recall you telling me that you were reading the Hare Krsna Hare Rama. If you still are, I have a little suggestion to make.

          Tis certainly better to be unrighteous than self righteous

          • Lawless

            If only we all could keep that in mind. Emotions tend to get in the way.

            So very true.

            • Lawless

              Yes. I am perfect in every way; that's why I can look down at all of you and write things like this. Not!! 😜

              Be well.

              A good write Lawless. Now where was I? Making a list of my perfections, good deeds, etc. There's so many. lol. Me guinea pigs bit me, and brought me back down to earth from my exalted 'goody two shoes' state.

                Good for them! We all need a bite every once in a while. Can you send one of those pigs to my president?!!!

                Most of them seem to think they are hanging from (nailed onto) some sort of a cross. More holy than any other could be.

                  Thanks dusk for commenting.

                  Everyone has the tendency to be self-righteous, some more than others, certainly when it comes to religion and politics. I have been guilty on occasion.

                  Recently I had a falling out with a poet here due to a disagreement, I wrote some things I regret. That incident is part of the reason I came up with this quote. Our egos can be very sensitive.

                    Personally i cant see why ppl need to spout their quasi religious stuff on here endlessly as if they are re-writing their bible poetically. Maybe they have been more thoroghly brainwashed than most?
                    I wonder at what motivates them? Life is for living surely.

                      I don't know about that. Remember Socrates? I am flattered though. Thanks bud!

                        I so need to share this with my unrequited soulmate. It describes him perfectly.

                        In fact it describes many.

                        • Lawless

                          We all must question our thoughts and actions. At my age I'm finding that to be very important. The more I learn, the more I find how little I do know.

                          Thanks for commenting and be patient with him.

                          • sylviasearcher

                            Oh I was joking of course lol. There is an intended irony in the phrase unrequited soulmate.

                            But i did like the quote.

                            Aren't we all self righteous? Or we would crumble?

                          • Unsub

                            LOL!

                            • Lawless

                              Yes, a bunch of silly crap!
