The following questions are from Scrivener's Friday 5 blog.
1. They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. How have you proven them right or wrong?
Kind of 50 / 50 for me. I am willing to learn new things some of the time, but not all of the time. Doing things in the old way is better than adapting to something new. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
2. They say you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him or her drink. How has this proven true or false in your life?
That's true. If you want something you have to pursue it. Only rarely has something dropped into my lap.
3. They say absence makes the heart grow fonder. How have they been proven right or wrong in your life?
I don't have much feeling in this one either way.
4. They say looks can be deceiving. How have you proven them right or wrong?
You can't judge a book by its cover... the same can be applied to record albums, movie posters and trailers. Sometimes the cool looking ones are overhyped trash and the not so attractive ones can be a gem.
5. They say opposites attract. How have you proven them right or wrong?
I think that varies depending on the person or the situation. In politics, to me, opposites don't attract, especially if you are entrenched into your ideology and reject the beliefs of the other.... Capitalism vs. Communism, Right vs. Left, Christian vs. Muslim, etc., etc. Life is never going to be perfect. Look at what's happening between Russia and Ukraine. It's a mess there that could escalate into something even more horrible than what it currently is.
