A-Z Challenge Day 14 - N






N is for Nonsense

Thanks to everyone who comes by, I hope you enjoy today's offerings :-)





The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas!


A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men.   Roald Dahl

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
 
All philosophies, if you ride them home, are nonsense, but some are greater nonsense than others.   Samuel Butler
 
Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

Always remember, money isn't everything - but also remember to make a lot of it before talking such fool nonsense.  Earl Wilson

Children: You spend the first 2 years of their life teaching them to walk and talk. Then you spend the next 16 years telling them to sit down and shut-up.

Common sense, in so far as it exists, is all for the bourgeoisie. Nonsense is the privilege of the aristocracy. The worries of the world are for the common people.   George Jean Nathan

Don't talk to me about a man's being able to talk sense; everyone can talk sense. Can he talk nonsense?   William Pitt

Laugh at your problems, everybody else does.

Forgive me my nonsense, as I also forgive the nonsense of those that think they talk sense. Robert Frost

You're never too old to learn something stupid.


Good sense about trivialities is better than nonsense about things that matter.   Max Beerbohm

Some people hear voices.. Some see invisible people.. Others have no imagination whatsoever.

I look upon another's insistence on the merits of his or her life - duties, intellect, accomplishment - and see that most of it is nonsense.  Harold Brodkey


There are nearly 1900 participants this year and you'll find a list HERE

Nonsense is one of my favourite topics and I think everybody needs some nonsense in their lives.

I read a Christian blog the other day, expounding the repression of imagination as the work of the devil. I guess--to each his own. Personally, my imagination drives me.
