... do you agree? An Italian poet (Eugenio Montale) wrote in one of his most famous lyrics such lines: ...Oh the simple minded man, friend to others and to himself, who does'nt take care of his own shade, impressed by the sunlight on a raw disrupted wall.. (freely translated by myself). Methinks that seldom we should be a bit more open to what has been defined 'weak thought' in order to be happy and grateful of what we have, and to be friends of everybody and everything. good bye MyLot friends!

The less Brain you have....the deeper pain you have. I believe if you exercise your Brain......you can transcend pain.

o. k. ........I also believe depending on where you are in your thought processes....You can feel the whole world's pain. But Because the Impact of that Magnitude would Kill a person.....you have to learn to control your own Mind to distill your thoughts. My girlfriend ( Looney-tunes ) says that today....her Mind is....Lemon -Jello. Yellow , because she loves sunshine. Jello , because it's transparent , and wobbley.

No heart and do not part; These writings are to be read only when ones walk upside down. I do not think all these writings are any meaning. It is made only to attract people. If everything is right, you will would not have discusssed and similarly others. That is the objective of the man who produces such stuff with writings.

By the way, Montale has been awarded the Nobel prize for Literature some decades ago... good thinking to everyone.

A say like "No brain No pain" would only be written by an intellectual who has never experienced real suffering. The people who suffer the most in this world are those who have no brain. Because they don't have the brain to get themselve out of their bad situation. The intellectual view suffering as not being able to buy all the materialistic things he sees around him. He buys a bigger house than he can afford... and when he cannot repay his mortgage... he views it as suffering. If greed is good... it is also the cause of suffering for many. So who really got the brain? Does a person with a brain would put himself in a situation of suffering by choice?
