Reflections, Unquotables

Unquotable Quotes #12…

A want is an awareness of what is lacking, but preferred, whereas a desire is that want fueled by deep emotion…

Is it therefore safe to say that a want is an empty glass waiting to be filled, while a desire is a glass overflowing, and needing to be emptied?

    • I believe so. But then, you were the one who told me that the glass is both half empty and half full at the same time, depending upon whether you are filling it or drinking it. That really stuck with me…

      This thought arose out of some personal speculation about motivation. Certainly, it’s not a finished thought path, but it’s where I had to leave it to go to work… lol


    • Interesting…

      I must ponder this a bit, as I cannot at first grasp what pressures might cause an empty glass to explode.

      Unless it has something to do with a vacuum created by greatest need drawing in emptiness (unfulfillment), which might cause the glass to IMplode for want of what is missing…

      Intriguing development of the metaphor, my friend. Thank you! 🙂
