I was just reading in the local newspaper where someone was quoted as saying, "If I can get through this...then so can anybody else!" (As if everyone else's circumstances are equal to yours, so they should be able to achieve everything you have...) One that is so trite and naïve that always gets me is, "everything happens for a reason". Really? Explain the to me Holocaust then. How about the Tsunami in Thailand? Child slavery? Sex trafficking? I feel so embarrassed for people when they say this one. It's like they should be wearing a t-shirt that reads, "SIMPLETON...AND PROUD OF IT!"
