I’ve updated my ever-wise, ever-think-twice-and-thrice-while-scratching-head-lice Quotes section! Now featuring 5 new quotes!
The wisest, I feel, for today, is this one:
“The truth is sealed behind many lips.”
Sorry for spoiling the fun and telling you straight, but these are my interpretations:
1) The original – people aren’t frank with each other, often keeping secret things they dislike about each other behind their lips, so to speak (or not speak, geddit?) Everybody these days are afraid to offend each other. And so, the truth is sealed behind their lips. (Thanks to Shom for giving me a mental link – I usually save my quotes when inspired on SMS, then forget the original meanings later! 🙁 )
2) The lecherous – lips are associated with kisses, and so the truth can be found in a kiss. If love will set you free, (and so will truth set you free) and a kiss is a sign of love, the lips’ kiss will set you free! You can also tell if somebody still loves you by the quality and feel of the kiss, whether it is honest, or forced.
3) The secretive – (More credit to this translation from Shom…) People feel proud to keep secrets. They feel power; an advantage in knowing they know something someone else doesn’t. Everybody has pieces of the truth which they keep to themselves selfishly. As such, nobody can claim to possess the whole truth, since other people are hoarding missing parts of the jigsaw.
4) (Reply with your own version!) Yes that’s right – click on the Replies link for once, and move your fingers! I am lazy to think of more, but I am sure the intelligent and mentally vociferous can come up with some brilliance, eh?
