People should stop calling everything “profound.” They say you can find meaning in anything if you persist long enough, and they act like it’s a difficult thing to do. But if you just keep piling up stones on the side of the road, like it not, that’s “profound” too.
Rather than things being genuinely profound, it’s really just you who’s choosing to going deeper and deeper. If you want to go deep, you can go as far as you want - or rather, you go to a point that satisfies you. It’s not right to be haughty simply for having done that.

A boy in grade school returned home. “Today, there was a question in class that only I could answer!” His father said proudly, “Only you? That’s my boy!” His mother’s eyes lit up and she said, “That’s wonderful. What was the question?” “Teacher asked who broke the window!”
At a hospital. Doctor: “How are you?” Japanese: “I’m fine, thank you. And you?”
Teacher: “Susie, if you have eight apples and I ask you for two, how many apples do you have?” Susie: “Eight.”

So I’m going shopping and I’ve got my hands full with bags when an old lady comes up from behind on a bike and as she passes me by she says “WHOA THERE MAKE SURE YOU DON’T DROP THAT *SNICKER*”…?!?
I was just looking at my iPhone, and a telephone pole got jealous and crashed into me.
I just learned the English word “pathos” today, but it doesn’t sound very sorrowful at all. It sounds like… currency.
That sadness will be 4 Pathos, please.

Words are so intimately involved in our lives that there’s a tendency to neglect to represent things through other means of expression. That’s why it’s difficult for us to express that which can’t be put into words. If you can’t express it in words, it’s not likely you can do it with music, art, physical things, or images either.
The differences in means of expression come down to different “thicknesses,” or “concreteness,” as well as what people personally like and dislike. Many people will say they like music and movies, but very few say they like words.

I’ve got something here that seems almost too good to be one of my songs. Even I’m surprised.
