Attacking a "Saying"

So a thought has come to mind. You know how people say "things always happen for a reason." Well I've been thinking that that's really just a load. I mean, come on - think about it. Of course you can say things always happen for a reason because afterward the person just comes up with their own reason. Honestly though, things don't happen for a reason. Things just happen - then people give them a reason.

It kind of reminds me of that saying, "it's always in the last place you look." Same thing here in that it's a completely pointless saying. Of course it's always in the last place you look... because when you find what you were looking for you stop looking. Then, that place where you found it in becomes the last spot! It's a kin to saying something like... "The place I'll find it in will be when I stop looking for it," all the while posing your arms on your hips and looking up into the sky all amazing like. Throw a couple doves in there and the sunshine. Yeah, it's pointless. Don't say it.

Really, they're both pointless. Don't say them. Please, don't say them. There, I asked nicely. So now you have to not say them! If you do happen to say "things happen for a reason" just remember this - things will happen and then things will happen after those things. Yes, the latter things may be a result of a former thing, but that former thing never happened just so that the latter thing could happen. Following me? They just happened. If you happen to say "it's always in the last place you look," or "it's going to be in the last place you look" just remember this - if you don't ever find it then it never really turns out to be in the last place you look. Run that through you're brain for a minute.

Anyways, pointless sayings aside.
Good luck (another pointless saying, ha, I'm being funny), just make things happen.

*UPDATE* February 26, 2009 - so, I figured out the only time you can say "It's always in the last place you look" is if you're looking for something where there are a predefined number of possible locations/choices...
