No one laughed. Mainly because all my twitter friends are too young. I think I need some older people in my life.
Anyway, I am fascinated by LaRochefoucauld. I was thinking last night as I was reading his maxims that he's such a bitter dude. Today, I was reading on Wikipedia that he was considered "gently cynical". Lame.
I was also wondering who sits around writing little maxims anyway? Not to say that most of them aren't brilliant but they're just a few lines of text instead of paragraphs of prose. Who does that?
Then it hit me; Twitter. That dude was about 400 years ahead of his time. He wasn't "gently cynical", he was tweeting!
We concern ourselves less with becoming happy than making others believe we are.
We are so accustomed to disguising ourselves to others that we end up becoming disguised to ourselves
The head cannot play the part of the heart for long.
