There are few nudities so objectionable as the naked truth.

Agnes Repplier

        Some time ago I came across a space called the ramblings of a mad prof. which I’ve made a point of makin return visits to on occasion as I’ve bin finding it to be a pretty interesting read. Not a frequent blogger but thoughtful, well written, and varied in interests and subject.

        Well a few days ago, I went for a visit to do a bit of catchin up and came across a question she had posed which particularly peeked my interest and compelled me to answer in comment. Oddly not feelin out ‘a place at all, considerin my redneck nature, amongst the intellect of other Profs and university students answerin to the same pose. . LoL

        So here is the question posed by ~ Gj ~ in her September 22 blob entitled “Wow!

One of the things we talked about in class tonight were the famous lines from Keats’ "Ode on a Grecian Urn": "Beauty is truth, truth beauty,"–that is all Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.

What does it mean? Any ideas? Not trying to be the teacher here, just curious if any of you have a thought on this.

        Now when it comes to truth and honesty … Yeah … I pretty much always has a thought on that subject !! So after a bit ‘a consideration, here is the thought I left behind and figured, what the hey!! Might as well bring it on home to da bunker and share it here as well.

 

~ Heya there Gj ~

        I’m thinkin truth bein beautiful is more a state of mind than anything else. In this day and age truth has become so obscure that we don’t even recognize it for what it is…. IE:

(q;) How did ya like that apple crisp I baked for ya??? …

(a;) I couldn’t even eat it all. It was just way too mushy.

.. The truth now becomes an insult .. A rude remark.

(q;) How does this dress look on me ??

(a;) That dress looks just wonderful on you.

         Now the truth has become a compliment, .. A stroking to the ego. (and if I may add, not necessarily the truth at all. . LoL .)

         If indeed truth is a state of mind, I do believe that an open minded person will see more beauty in truth about the world around them than someone of a selfish, narrow-minded attitude could ever dream of finding

         A weed is a plant such as is growin where ya don’t want it ta grow. If it so happens that said plant just happens to be a rose … Then a weed is still a weed by any other name.

         And that is beauty in truth !

  1. Well hon, intellectual I am NOT! lol I gave up on that years ago. Way to hard on the ole brain! lol These days I stick to things which dont require alot of thought, much easier to deal with, as I have alot on my plate at all times now as it is to think about. Perhaps on second thought, I should get back into that way of life, it would give me other things to think about besides reality and truth eh? Naw, I like my rosecolored glasses just fine, one size fits all! Have a great night hon, and big hugs to you.

  2. Hello Archie, its Monday morning lol. And you decide to get intellectual on me? I am lucky if I can spell the word let alone do it! lmao But you have a great day anyway.

  4. Interesting..it means exactly what it says..beauty is truth..and truth is beauty..I take it for what its worth..I would rather hear the truth than a lie..and that gives me more respect for people..if something looks funny on me..then tell me..and I will love you even more for the honesty..hmmmm..rambling here..should go now..lolRoxy
