When one does not have what one wants, one must want what one has.

  1. Tuh. that’s just presupposing you need what you’ve got. I’ve got lots of things I don’t need, so I take them to the car boot, and then….I buy what I want.

    1. That’s good thinking! This apparently didn’t occur to Freud. He was too busy thinking of phallic symbols and Oedipus complexes, I guess ๐Ÿ˜›

        1. Clever clogs is good, but clearly scholars need someone “normal” to guide them through the practicalities of real life ๐Ÿ˜‰

      1. You like the rhyme? or you agree with the idea?
        I don’t quite agree because it translates to one settling for less in life. No one starts out with what the want. And fulfillment only comes from achieving the object of one’s aspiration. If we remove that, there would be no passion, drive, or focus. I think life would be boring. Just my thinking.
        But I like it as a rhyme though, the literature of the statement.

        1. I “agree” with the idea, actually. I don’t think that it urges one to want less, rather, it suggests that one should be happy with what one has and shouldn’t be depressed if one doesn’t achieve his/her goals. But I like this kind of statements in that they are open to a variety of interpretations ๐Ÿ™‚
