Welcome to a space beyond the Equinox, where equality becomes a myth again! If the Sun and Moon are not equal, can day and night be? The strength of the stars and power of perception gain importance here. It is all a matter of underlying meaning and perspectives.
Our theme this week is ‘Paradox’.
Some well-known examples are
- Your enemy’s friend is your enemy.
- I am nobody.
- “What a pity that youth must be wasted on the young.” – George Bernard Shaw
- Wise fool
- Truth is honey, which is bitter.
- “I can resist anything but temptation.” – Oscar Wilde
- “All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.” – George Orwell
- “I must be cruel to be kind.” – Shakespeare
- “The earth that’s nature’s mother is her tomb;
What is her burying grave, that is Rainbow in her womb…” – Shakespeare
- “The child is the father of the man…” William Wordsworth
You are free to use any of the above, other examples that you like, or invent some of your own.
I came across a new one today – All of us have a lesser number of friends than our friends do.
Incorporate the sentence in your piece – be it fiction, poetry, essay, anecdotes, memories or any other format that you choose.
Post it on your blog, and link it up here. If the pingback does not work, please copy-paste the link. Tag it ‘Reena’s Exploration Challenge’ for easy search in the blog roll.
