“Whether the stone hits the jar or the jar hits the stone, it’s bad for the jar,” is a paraphrase of an old proverb. Whether we like it or not, jars get broken in this world we live in. Think for a few minutes of all the “jars” that have broken in your life; and all those that you yourself may have broken.


We should be thankful for the jars that are not broken and make an effort to fill the empty jars.

    Sure is.., SK.

  2. Kyels Says:

    I do agree but the agony is there, whenever a jar breaks.

    Definitely, Kyels.

  3. shanobyl Says:

    But sometimes, it can be fixed. Though the cracks will always show, its now a bit stronger than before.

    Sha, that’s true.. but it will never be in its original state again.

  4. moz monster Says:

    Jars don’t have to be broken … sometimes we break it because we’re overcome with anger and need a release. Perhaps more constructive ways of venting frustration?

    Moz, actually it’s just an analogy. jars = hearts.

    Never heard about this old proverb. How true it is.. *nod*

    btw, I think this is my first time in here 😀

    Welcome, Selba.
    I visited you for the first time today, too. 🙂

    I’m glad you agree with the proverb.

    er.. super glue helps.
    hearts can be mended. got scar, but if allowed to heal, the scar will be just a hair line crack. hardly noticeable and made more sweeter because it is now stronger.

    Misti, that is very sweet of you.
    Your comment is very motivating.
    I like it. Thanks.

  7. If only some stone could have hit Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars! 🙂

    No matter what we do, we can’t prevent it at all
    What an ironic thing

    Mattz, I’m just sad that there are some friends who hurts & breaks my heart by judging me non-stop.

  9. Shez Says:

    It’s very true.
    Even we still have unbroken jars we still can’t forget the pain of having the jars broken.

    The ‘scar’ (crack) remains, Shez. Hence, it will always serves as a reminder.

  10. ‘I’m just sad that there are some friends who hurts & breaks my heart by judging me non-stop.’

    How is this for a judgement:
    Ten out of Ten for being you! 🙂

    You can’t score any higher than that! 😉

    Thanks, Dabs. 🙂
