    1:99 Quotes

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Azurisy, May 2, 2014.

    Hey

    I know that there are some really beautiful, inspirational sayings but I've come up with a few original sayings!

    Existing sayings:

    '1% is inspiration; 99% is perspiration'

    '1% is consciousness; 99% is subconsciousness'

    '1% is nature; 99% is nurture'

    My original sayings:

    '1% is creativity; 99% is logic'

    (this may be contradictory since in the western world, creativity is often frowned upon as primitive, subconscious and backward, whereas I consider it of the highest consciousness compared to logic)

    '1% is spiritual/divine state; 99% is material/physical/natural state'

    '1% is meaningful life; 99% is ordinary life'

    What does anyone think?

    sorry to say, what i think is that your 'original' sayings are not all that original... nor 'inspirational' in any way that i can imagine...

    and none of what you list as 'existing sayings' actually are... you've changed what has been said by thomas edison and others into forms that were never used as 'sayings'... google each of those in " " and you'll see they don't exist in that form...

    Your point? I haven't heard them either, but they can still be meaningful.
