An exaggeration is a truth that has lost its temper.
Ah, a big man I had to be
from myself, I had to flee
an exaggerated fool is me
Sipping my coffee laced with cinnamon, I noticed how beautiful it is outside today. It is almost springlike, however, I have a feeling winter has not dismissed us from its chilly grasp. I am so looking forward to the wondrous colors that embrace the trees and foliage that is part of our surroundings and makes for a happy feeling.
Pondering the today’s quote, I said to myself “Can’t an exaggeration of the truth become a lie in some situations?” I believe stretching the truth may inadvertently redefine the original thought or statement. Do you not agree?
A truth that lost its temper? Yes, I think so, because the exaggeration can be the ruination of the truth! An overstatement; to represent disproportionately and perhaps causing distrust and ire.
