    Default The daily quote thread

    As i found no such thread with a quick search, i thought it is time for a thread for daily quotes/proverbs/sayings:

    I start:

    Everybody's darling is everyone's idiot.

    Great inititiative, Morty! I am not entirely sure if understand it correctly, but I assume it means that we are affectionately critical of the people closest to us.

    Another interpretation takes me to the saying "kill your darlings", meaning that we too often get too infatuated with our own ideas. Often it would be preferable to let others improve on our ideas and let them develop into something better than the original proposition.

    Here's a contribution from my mom.

    A joy you share with someone is twice the joy, but the icecream you share with someone is not twice the icecream.

    That are interesting interpretations, but its core meaning is not to try to be always nice to everyone else, as no one will you take serious then and use you as punchingball.

    Or shorter: Don't lose yourself by trying to please everyone else.

    Thanks! Now I understand and actually agree. A person should not seek attention and acceptance of others at the cost of their own dignity or moral integrity.

    On a related note, although the icecream thing is meant as a humorous one, I disagree with it. As my survival or wellbeing at present is not dependent on the amount of icecream I get, I would much more enjoy sharing my icecream with friends than eating all of it by myself.

    That's why I dont have friends!

    The greatest happiness is to vanquish your enemies, to chase them before you, to rob them of their wealth, to see those dear to them bathed in tears, to clasp to your bosom their wives and daughters.
