“Common sense and a sense of humor are the same thing, moving at different speeds. A sense of humor is just common sense dancing.” William James
This makes sense to me. Think about it; common sense will tell you that a lot of what happens isn’t all that serious. If something is serious a sense of humor helps you get through it with your sanity in check.
In today’s world there are a lot of very serious things happening or could happen at any moment. Common sense recognizes this fact but doesn’t allow it to be the only focus in life.
We can spend our time analyzing every aspect of every thing that comes our way or we can look at things and use common sense to decide what we need to study and think about in depth and what we can do. If we can do something, great, if we can’t we might as well dance.
“A true friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg even though he knows that you are slightly cracked.” Bernard Meltzer
