There are lots of bullshit phrases.
Don't believe something just because it is commonly accepted. Otherwise you will believe that humans are "special" and created in the image of a "god" - even though we occupy space in the universe of about 1/10^(soemthing ridiculous).
Phrases that are bullshit, yet commonly accepted:
"money can't buy happiness"
- yes it fucking can. did you enjoy your last holiday? that was happiness you bought with money.
"patience is a virtue"
- no it's fucking not. why is sitting around waiting a good thing??? Have you ever even THOUGHT about this phrase before accepting it as true? I would go as far as to say IMPATIENCE is a virtue would be more correct.
Since when is impatience a flaw? And why is patience a virtue? Says who? Jesus Christ?
Why can't impatience be a virtue? It all depends on the context. For instance if you're patient when someone tries to murder you or blow your brains out, you might agree with me.
