Exaggerating the Truth?

282131-Watching-Owl

An exaggeration is a truth that has lost its temper.
Kahlil Gibran

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.

    I agree with what you said. An exaggeration is often more lie than truth and can cause tempers to flare. Always good to have you share with In Other Words.

    Oh my. You are running such a beautiful blog! I love love love Kahlil Gibran, and his “The Madman” is one of my favourite pieces of all time (highly recommended).
    And may I just say, you have such a beautiful writing style. Simply reading this made m feel very warm & serene.

    I have to agree with Kahlil Gibran. His philosophy on life with all of its facets is so true but beautifully said.

When the green woods laugh with the voice of joy, And the dimpling stream runs laughing by; When the air does laugh with our merry wit, And the green hill laughs with the noise of it.
