You don’t say

Just sifted through some old handwritten notes of mine.

One, courtesy of Groucho Marx, “Always examine the dice“. Intuitively his sentiment appeals to me. Might also explain why I am not fond of gambling. I went to a casino once, won (beginner’s luck) and left it at that. I am not one for tempting fate.

Yes, dice. Many years ago, when FOS was still my boyfriend he became totally absorbed, nay convinced, of that awful book The Dice Man. Base life’s big decisions on the fall of a die? NAH. Sent me screaming to the hills. Mind you, FOS’s theory was that if you threw the die and your stomach turned at what the number thrown signified you knew which way to go. Fair enough. Except I don’t need a die for that. And what if your stomach is in neutral? You’ll be none the wiser or nearer to making a decision. Which neatly links in with another note I  found

“The truth does not change according to your ability to stomach it“. Its meaning pretty obscure to me. But it sounds good.

  1. “The truth does not change according to your ability to stomach it” I take that to mean that if you can’t stomach an awkward truth, you try to alter it or deny it. But whatever your efforts at denial, it’s still the truth.

    • Yes. Sigh. Truths are immutable, or so I hope. However, Nick, and I hate to say it, sometimes truth is not so much “factual” as subjective. That’s when you sit on a potential landmine, face a potential mind fuck.

  2. Truth is subjective. One man’s truth need not be another’s. Truth also varies subject to the context in which it is expressed. Human lives are complicated. There are no absolutes.
