Controversial Phrases

While doing research on the internet (sometimes a good idea - often not), I came upon the following advice:

LIVE LIKE YOU'VE ONLY GOT ONE GRENADE

I asked Pete what he thought of that - he said it was negative. Without thinking, I decided it was positive. Now, after thinking about it, I'm sure it's positive - even if the original author didn't mean it that way.

It is so easy to get irritated, distracted, or just plain tired of it all - to just want to blow it all up and start over...or worse yet - to end it all. Now, of course, one phrase won't help anyone with disastrous problems, clinical depression or a lifetime of strife. But, for those moments when someone annoys us, this might be a good reminder to save that grenade for something much more serious - and to have faith that it never arrives.
