Rhetoric and rewards The cynic claims he is wise because he no longer responds to “empty rhetoric.” But what his lack of response really shows is not that the rhetoric is empty, but that his soul is empty of the higher motives to which rhetoric once successfully appealed. The cynic is certain rhetoric alone will never persuade others to help him. If he wants to avoid being left out in the cold, he needs not eloquence but cold, hard cash. When others ask him for help, he ignores rhetorical appeals to kindness and mercy and asks what’s in it for him. The life of the cynic is concerned primarily with rewards in all its phases. In the first phase, he learns the skills he needs to earn rewards. In the second, he earns rewards. In the third, he leisurely enjoys the rewards he has earned. A life motivated by higher motives would not have this tripartite division. If I’m motivated by a passion to learn, I will learn for my entire life. If I’m motivated by love for my fellow men, I will work to help them for my entire life. Confucius advises me to rank the effort above the prize. Buddha advises me to look away from the glittering world and concentrate on improving my mind. When I run around busily seeking rewards and summarily dismiss all who would detain me with their “empty rhetoric,” I show my values are inverted. It is rewards that are empty, while rhetoric alone can help me return to the path to intellectual and moral excellence.


Am I too much of a cynic - No I don't think so either - This video and gushing nonsense explains precisely why I have little time for the vast swathes of humanity Or as I posted in reply to the previous share Made me smile, but as I am able to respond immediately after watching the video - didn't leave me speechless. Kind of reminds me of the use of the word 'Star' for some bit-part in a reality TV programme. Or bereft drivel by those who didn't actually know the person, but live a vicarious lifestyle over the death of someone who has been in the newspapers or on television because they were the off-spring of someone else who was also in the newspapers or on television. Language is being denigrated to dust - what if something really did 'leave you speechless' - how would it be described. Too much gush and PR for me and symptomatic of a world turned to un-thinking - unfeeling - uncaring media led automatons. But thanks for sharing Cat - I am still smiling at the Irish lilt and carefully chosen music which gives the video it's power. If you play it on mute - well it just looks like pups finding something of amusement for a very brief moment in their lives.

That is top 20 in this country out of all schools including Harvard and Duke. For once I was speechless, which is rare for me.


Prayer of Confession O God, our God, we celebrate the new life which you have given us. We have experienced broken lives made whole, old wounds of alienation healed over, and tired spirits rejuvenated with new vision. Gracious God, we are so grateful for the purpose and possibilities you have placed before us. Yet there are times when doubt has overcome hope, cynicism has replaced dedication, the world’s values have captured us more than yours. Forgive us those times, we pray. Help us let go of the past that we might move joyfully into a new future that points to your love and justice. Amen.


Relationships don’t work the way they do on television and in the movies: Will they, won’t they, and then they finally do and they’re happy forever - gimme a break. Nine out of ten of them end because they weren’t right for each other to begin with, and half the ones that get married get divorced anyway. And I’m telling you right now, through all this stuff, I have not become a cynic, I haven’t. Yes, I do happen to believe that love is mainly about pushing chocolate-covered candies and, you know, in some cultures, a chicken. You can call me a sucker, I don’t care, ‘cause I do…believe in it. Bottom line…is the couples that are truly right for each other wade through the same #!$% as everybody else, but the big difference is, they don’t let it take ‘em down.


Further insights from a cynic wannabe. I have no idea how in the World this State managed to NOT, earn a spot as worst drivers!

And yes you're right you have no idea if that car ahead of you is going to constantly sit on it's brakes. Or if three out of the seven cars around you are deep within there own thoughts. Just try. It's okay. I promise you won't fall apart. Your car won't spin dangerously out of control. Just try, driving oh say the actual speed limit 5-0.


I've just had a call from my Dad. My first in six months. He's left me a voicemail saying that he's sorry he hasn't called as he's phones been broken.
