This is the first appearance of “Common Sense” here at The Year(s) of Living Non-Judgmentally, as I approach the fifth anniversary of this daily blog.
It’s about time for common sense here and elsewhere, don’t you think?
Here are some uncommon quotes about common sense:
Common sense is not so common. — Voltaire
Common Sense is that which judges the things given to it by other senses. — Leonardo Da Vinci
I read, I study, I examine, I listen, I think, and out of all that I try to form an idea into which I put as much common sense as I can. — Marquis de Lafayette
Society is always taken by surprise at any new example of common sense. — Ralph Waldo Emerson
Common sense is the most fairly distributed thing in the world, for each one thinks he is so well-endowed with it that even those who are hardest to satisfy in all other matters are not in the habit of desiring more of it than they already have. — René Descartes
Philosophy is common sense with big words. — James Madison
Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age 18. — Albert Einstein
Everybody gets so much information all day long that they lose their common sense. — Gertrude Stein
It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible for public office. — H. L. Mencken
Common sense and a sense of humor are the same thing, moving at different speeds. A sense of humor is just common sense, dancing. — Clive James
There is nothing more uncommon than common sense. — Frank Lloyd Wright
Do you seen any common (or uncommon) sense in my photos from yesterday?
Was it common sense for me to invite people in a therapy group last night to express what makes them cry and what makes them laugh? I didn’t have the common sense to photograph more things on my list of what makes me laugh.
Common sense dictates that I thank all who helped me create this “Common Sense” post and you — of course! — for all your common and uncommon sense.
