The last... Though I don't quite understand what the second is implying.

I think the first one is pretty funny and true, but the last one is one of the few rare proverbs that apply to all humans. Even if a person is trying to life a simple, peaceful life there will always be someone who makes it hard for them to live that way.

Agree, #5 represents life the most.
I think #2 means that the leader of a group does not necessarily mean that its the most powerful, but the person that is invisible is the most clever. At least that's what I'm thinking. =D

Each might have a bit of truth in some sense, but I generally would not utter such trite sayings.

The last one is perhaps the only one worthy of much discussion. What is mean by life being simple? How do we make it complicated?

So where is the extended part of this discussion? Where did you get those sayings from, and what is the point of this thread?

I agree with number five. It's funny how we the people make life so incredibly complicated when it doesn't have to be.
Also how come we all seem to think if we have this or that [materialistic items] we'll be happier when infact the moment we recieve what we've been wishing we are just as miserable as before and process continues.

have a good education, graduate ivy, have a nice car, get rich, marry, have a family, and die.

Politics. Even though almost all animals that live in groups have some sort of hierarchy system, ours seems much more complicated than it needs to be. It's so complex because there are so many people who want to benefit from the "system" and can't be content with just living their lives and cooperating with others. If buffaloes and lions can work together within their groups relatively peacefully without always trying to out-do each other, then why can't we?

it means one who can survive on his own instead of constantly relying on others will be stronger than any individual who relies on others

The thing about sayings, proverbs et cetera is that they are to be applied at the exactly correct situation. In some situations they will always be nonsense. Which is why I only pay attention to the funny ones, because it is too complicated with very little gain to know them.
1. Weird. Insanity doesn't really apply to this. And gentics may make this "saying" obsolete.
2. Depends on the situation. In confrontation with a gang I'd say I was done for.
3. Depends on how hard you were hit first and why the fight cease. If the opponent has been bled dry, take a last swing and falls down, I'd declare the standing the winner, even if the other one had the last swing.
4. That's just anti-religious. Besides, it depends on what you pray for and if a suprior being really grants prayer. Besides, it's a lousy advice. Use a toilet. And you would only do the 2 at the same time if you had a bad stomach.
5. Depends on your options in life. If you have no job, friends or lover, or have other problems like addiction or mental problems, you would not claim life was simple. Some people complicate life, but life is not necessarily simple. The premices for the saying is incorrect.
