Day 3226: The best thing about human beings

Last night, this human being asked other human beings on Twitter this best question about human beings:

I think the best thing, here and now, is to share some of the answers from human beings.


Do you see best things about human beings in any of the other images in today’s post?

Maybe the best thing about human beings is knock-knock jokes, and that’s my best segue to the best knock-knock joke made up by my best (and only) son, Aaron:

Knock, knock.

Who’s there?

The town detective.

The town detective who?

I’ll be asking the questions around here.

The best thing about Halloween, for me, is that was the day I met the best human being named Michael, who is now my husband.

The best thing about human beings, said one human being above, is music, so here’s a best song from one of the answers.

What do you think is the best thing about human beings?

A best thing about human beings is the ability to express and receive appreciation, so thanks to all of the best human beings who visit this blog, including YOU!

  1. their hearts.

  2. Love and empathy!

  3. Peace, love and understanding, Ann, a feeling that also weaves music into my answer.

  4. puella33

    That’s a good question-sometimes I believe there’s more civility in the animal kingdom.

  5. The best thing about human beings is hugs. Real, authentic, heart to heart hugs.

  6. We are a storytelling animal. Maybe other animals are too and we just don’t understand them, but being able to tell stories, and think in metaphors, is the wellspring of all creativity. We can understand the community we share to be like Theseus’s ship–even after every plank, every oar, and every sail has been replaced we’re all still in the same boat.

  7. The ability to keep silence, and even with that they need training:

    “The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls and tenements halls and whispered in the sounds of silence.”- Paul Simon

    • Paul Simon’s quote speaks of the negative side of silence.

      I mean this kind of positive silence:

      “The human heart has hidden treasures, In secret kept, in silence sealed; The thoughts, the hopes, the dreams, the pleasures, Whose charms were broken if revealed.”- Charlotte Bronte
