Isn't that the truth?
S.J.Qualls; yes it is, but it shouldn't be.
OHHH but for one glorious moment, you can have it all! :)
Happy Elf Christine; true, but I'd like things to last a bit longer. Okay, a LOT longer.
Andrew; sadly is the right word. I think too many these days focus on the castle in the air instead of what is or is not holding it up.
Hi River,Totally true!:o)CheersPM
Plasman; yes it is, but it shouldn't be that way.
Elephant's Child; especially if you're a politician thinking he can fool the masses, who are often desperate enough to believe.
A perfect description of many of today's products!!
fishducky; sad but true, nothing much is made to last anymore. Even real houses (castles) aren't made as solidly as they once were.
Sounds like all bras I try to wear.
Joanne; that's true. I had so many over the years that looked good only for the first couple of months.
.. I like things in my life to be more on the solid and lasting side and less airy fairy.... although a few daydreams are nice.. xxxxxx ..Barb xxxx
Barbara; daydreams are the only things that don't require a solid and lasting foundation.
Looking some way at times might not see the entire picture.Coffee is on
peppylady (Dora); sometimes the big picture is too hard to see.
True in some cases, not in all.
Lee; of course not all, but in too many cases I think, people build on pipe dreams, chasing castles in the air.
What is the truth ; but a lie in disguise..Who is doing Words today?
Words today are by Carolyn McBride, you'll find her athttps://dragonquillca.wordpress.com
So very true.Thoughts in Progressand MC Book Tours
Mason Canyon; very true of many politicians promises.
Really!!It's true though.
Margaret-whiteangel; true of so many things these days.
There's way too much truth in that one to make it funny. Worse yet, today's products have a built-in obsolescence, with the understanding that it'll be less expensive for people to buy another new product than it'd be to repair the poorly-built product that stopped working right on schedule.
Susan; even if things aren't poorly built it is often near impossible to find support in the case of computer programs, or repair places that actually carry the necessary parts to fix something worth saving.
So very true. Instant gratification seems far more important than long term quality.
Cheryl; instant gratification seems to be taking over the world, but really only works for something easily and quickly paid for, like hot chocolate or icecream.It might seem to work for bigger things, but when the sheen wears off and you are still paying off the credit card many years later, that's not such a good deal after all.
