“By and large, mothers and housewives are the only workers who do not have regular time off. They are the great vacation-less class.”
Anne Morrow Lindbergh quotes (American writer and aviation pioneer, 1906-2001)
Counterintutition is a seemingly simple concept– it represents a truth that is contrary to common sense or the expectations of intuition.
Some examples of counterintuitive situations: You burn calories when you’re sleeping, flailing around is exactly the wrong thing to do when drowning, and beautifully speckled dart frogs can be poisonous to the touch.
Now my take on it- I have come across so many counterintuitive phrases, it surprises me that even after being proved wrong they are still in use. Here is a list-
1- Practice makes a man perfect but no body is perfect.
2- Men are more intelligent, powerful, entrepreneur etc. etc. etc. than women, and we all know the truth.
3- Men are distracted by how a woman dress , especially in some of Asian countries they are forced to put veils, otherwise they are so pure and innocent.
4- Women are weaker sex whereas , everybody knows who needs all those medicines.
5- Crocodile’s tears , they are not at all unhappy while eating but shed tears.
6- People with different views or different species can not get along
There are so many about food or exercises, I can go on and on but I think I should make it small and simple.
There comes a stage or rather age in life
where aspiration, expectations, and needs
all merge into each other and you aspire,
expect and need a world,
without hunger, poverty and sickness
without boundaries, discrimination and terrorism
a world full of
love, compassion, and friendship
a world where religion is compatibility and respect for each other
a religion which embraces every one with open heart.
Is it asking too much ?
