Trifextra #74

Trifextra asks

This weekend we are asking you to play around with the following quote:

Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind.
Henry James

We want you to follow the same general structure of the above quote.  Feel free to change the subject–tell us what’s important about coffee or houseplants or whatever you’d like.  Or else change up the modifier–instead of telling us what’s important, tell us what’s sexy or overrated or pernicious.  Your last three lines should closely echo James’s, giving us the same answer three times.

Here is my answer:

On Living,

First, untrue actions that  betray the heart  is no way to Live .

Second, lies betray, through truth we truly Live.

Third, obvious truth,we only have one chance to Live.

  1. A lovely take on the prompt. Kudos.

    some takes that inadvertently comes to my mind ……

    Satyam, shivam, sundram.

    “Truth is God and God is beautiful”

    another perspective (though not unconnected)

    Truth is a pathless land – Jiddu Krishnamurty.

    πŸ™‚

  2. Loved your entry. There is so much truth in your words. we go about doing stuff which are so untrue to our hearts. Question is what is the truth of your heart? Do I know it yet ?

    • It is a constant question…at this time in my life the only suitable answers are love, be honest, be open, never judge.

      oddly enough these answers i draw on are mostly from experiences ive had with those who’ve acted in the opposite way towards myself.
