I Just Wanted To Say...

What is your problem?

Name:
Location: Georgia, United States

I am me. More than I was, less than I will be. This is difficult. Facts-female, southern, mother and grandmother. Abstract-a Christian, a loner, intelligent, somewhat arrogant, impatient with stupidity, an unusual sense of humor.

Stating the Obvious

I was doing some research on "appropriate use of force", when I came upon this gem--
Do not remove a fly from your friend’s forehead with a hatchet-Chinese proverb
After I quit laughing, I thought about this quote-- "We have now sunk to the depth at which the restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men." - George Orwell

Since the proverb is an old Chinese one, seems that although George gets the credit for verbalizing the thought, he was still a little behind the curve on this one.
