Thought Processes

The Thinker - Auguste Rodin

I am a thinker.
I dissect and analyze
Everything around me
Into the smallest segments possible,
Until opportunity disintegrates
Before my eyes.
Much better to take action,
To step forward
And live a larger life
Than my systematic mind
Would ever think possible.

An unexamined life is not worth living says Socrates.
The advantages outweigh the disadvantages.
Talked to any surface dwellers lately?:)

I enjoyed this poem. It had me thinking.

Yup, I can go along with this! Hypothesis and antithesis bring in a new synthesis!

i think perfection is when both can be combined..do a bit of analyzing and then stepping boldly into the race..nicely done mary

I always liked that statue, nice choice. I also like how you jump from that into overthinking things into the "smallest segments possible" when "opportunity disintegrates." It's a good way to turn they abstract idea into something tangible.

This made me smile! Such truth here in concise form. I think many can identify. One can think and think as opportunities pass by.

I think to live a full life, we need to be in it..doing and experiencing it.

Nice take ~

I think finding a balance b/t the two is the key. Enjoyed this, Mary!

I suspect that many of us lean toward the thinking/feeling side of life. Like Laurie says, Balance is where it's at!
