"An early bird may get the worm... but the second mouse gets the cheese".

A quote I read today floored me and here's why;  the two sides are unequally matched.  How can an early bird be compared to a lazy mouse, and worms with cheese? Many discussions and arguments have arisen where the combatants try to strengthen their point by crooked thinking. It might win a couple battles but they're usually short lived.  In London slang it's called 'comparing apples to oranges'.  The argument is inherently flawed.  So let's not compare, because when we do we'll find ourselves in hot water.

An early bird shows effort can bring it's reward.The mouse wasn't lazy but the second one was either lucky or wise to follow in the first ones path.
These sayings are there just as a guide for good in times of need.
It's not a law of life but it does fool those with no humanity when they think they have something to say.
If there was real and genuine depth and desire to your quest you would find the answers you need.

Mira has plenty to say, and has shown her humanity through her writings. Astronuts like you are better off left in Space.

Love of mine some day you will die
But I'll be close behind
I'll follow you into the dark

No blinding light or tunnels to gates of white
Just our hands clasped so tight
Waiting for the hint of a spark

If heaven and hell decide
That they both are satisfied
Illuminate the no's on their vacancy signs
If there's no one beside you
When your soul embarks

Then I'll follow you into the dark

In Catholic school as vicious as Roman rule
I got my knuckles bruised by a lady in black
And I held my tongue as she told me
"Son fear is the heart of love"
So I never went back

If heaven and hell decide
That they both are satisfied
Illuminate the no's on their vacancy signs

If there's no one beside you
When your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark

You and me have seen everything to see
From Bangkok to Calgary
And the soles of your shoes are all worn down
The time for sleep is now
It's nothing to cry about
Cause we'll hold each other soon
The blackest of rooms

If heaven and hell decide
That they both are satisfied
Illuminate the no's on their vacancy signs

If there's no one beside you
When your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark
Then I'll follow you into the dark

I think Astronutcase has passive aggression

Astronut said...

Astronutcase knows what he's talking about and this bird is a sociopath that you should all beware of.
Look up the sociopathic characteristics and check her out.
All her writings are meant to tempt in sheep to her trap.
They are bland,glib,superficial and show no moral courage,just a need for stimulation.
I read between the lines and have nothing but pity for those fall victim to this one.You are warned,I am just the messenger.
