(Sorta) Daily Writing Prompt 05-04-2015
I’d like to continue a (sorta) daily writing prompt challenge. The original post is here . The prompts come from a book titled More Daily Wisdom: 365 Buddhist Inspirations . It consists of daily quotes from various Buddhist writings intended to inspire, to get the reader to think or feel. I wish to express this reaction in writing and hope to motivate others to do so also.
If you’d like to participate, please tag your posts 365DailyPrompt
The prompt for today, May 4, 2015, is:
Expounding one yard cannot be done without practicing one yard.
Since “expound” means “to set forth or state in detail,” I’m not sure I can make a whole lot of sense out of this. One can expound (on) a proposition, a theory, a law: it’s certainly not necessary to practice any of these (particularly the law) to expound on any of them. As a matter of fact, there seems to be a sort of an inverse law at work in some cases. The more expounding, the less practicing.
Just a thought.
