Absurdities and Anomalies of Life always amaze and amuse me. Shared here are my favorite 21 mind-boggling dichotomies: (i) Only Certainty in this world is that there is nothing Certain, except death and taxes off course, (ii) Only Constant is the Change, (iii) The more you try to impress folks, the less impressed they will be, (iv) The more afraid you become of death, the less likely you wll enjoy life, (v) The more afraid you are to fail, the more likely you will fail, (vi) The more you fail, the more likely you will succeed, (vii) The harder you push for anything, the harder it will be to achieve, (viii) The more available anything is, the less likely you will want it, (ix) The more you learn, the more you realize your ignorance, (x) The more you argue with spouse or boss, the less likely you will win, (xi) The more you try to come close, the farther you will get pushed, (xii) The more choices you will have, the less satisfied you will be with any of those, (xiii) The more connected you get in social network, more isolated you will become, (xiv) The more you talk about your flaws, the more perfect you become in society's eyes, (xv) Peace is the only battle worth fighting for, (xvi) In order to better understand the world, you will have to turn away from it, (xvii) The more the people talk about something, the less they know about it, (xviii) The less someone cares about others, the less he cares about himself, (xix) the more you hate a trait in others, the more likely you are avoiding it in your own self, (xx) Those who can't trust others can't be trusted, and finally (xxi) No matter what it is, at the end of the day, the less is always the more.

– TacitusRate it:
Abused as we abuse it at present, dramatic art is in no sense cathartic it is merely a form of emotional masturbation. It is the rarest thing to find a player who has not had his character affected for the worse by the practice of his profession. Nobody can make a habit of self-exhibition, nobody can exploit his personality for the sake of exercising a kind of hypnotic power over others, and remain untouched by the process.
– Aldous HuxleyRate it:
