Idle Word Play

“The unhappiest people in this world are the ones who care the most about what other people think.”
~Unknown

That sounds nice, maybe a “smart” thing to say, at least at first glance. But let’s try some alternatives.

  • The unhappiest people in this world are the ones who know that other people don’t think.
  • The unhappiest people in this world are the ones who know that other people don’t know what they actually believe, value, or even feel.
  • The happiest people in this world are the ones who believe other people actually think.
  • The happiest people in this world are the ones who believe other people actually know what they’re talking about and know what they’re doing.

I guess you could kind of condense those alternatives into one…

  • The happiest people in this world are the ones that don’t think.

:lol: I don’t know… I like mine better. And hell, even if you don’t agree with my version or you like the original better, at least I have the satisfaction of having had a little idle fun playing with the words. :p

  1. I think you are right that the happiest people are the ones who don’t think, who are ignorant in some fashion. My boyfriend, he’s intelligent, but he doesn’t think about anything that I do lol. He says I think to much and he is a much happier person than I am.
