rise above our reasoning and facing them later

"A couple of hundred years ago, Benjamin Franklin shared with the world the secret of his success. Never leave that till tomorrow, he said, which you can do today. This is the man who discovered electricity. You think more people would listen to what he had to say. I don't know why we put things off, but if I had to guess, I'd have to say it has a lot to do with fear. Fear of failure, fear of rejection, sometimes the fear is just of making a decision, because what if you're wrong? What if you're making a mistake you can't undo? The early bird catches the worm. A stitch in time saves nine. He who hesitates is lost. We can't pretend we hadn't been told. We've all heard the proverbs, heard the philosophers, heard our grandparents warning us about wasted time, heard the damn poets urging us to seize the day. Still sometimes we have to see for ourselves. We have to make our own mistakes. We have to learn our own lessons. We have to sweep today's possibility under tomorrow's rug until we can't anymore. Until we finally understand for ourselves what Benjamin Franklin really meant. That knowing is better than wondering, that waking is better than sleeping, and even the biggest failure, even the worst, beat the hell out of never trying."

girls love details and guys don't really like to provide them. the favourite phrase to counter our doubt is "just trust me". you'll never understand how much it takes out of us to rise above our reasoning and how terrible it feels when it falls apart.

for a moment i was excited she had the courage to pursue love but like a love sensation, it doesn't last that long. do they? sigh... i didn't even have a chance to express how sweet he is yet. ok... give me his story, i will tell you if i still like him. now don't you ever tell me again that girls are not reasonable and they refuse give you a chance to speak.
