About: Profundity: the quality or state of being profound; depth.
I believe that profundity can often be found in the most mundane of places; or it can be faked arbitrarily by removing the mundanity. I hereby present the Profundity Project, where I will take sentences from decidedly un-profound sources and present them as deep and life-changing aphorisms.
“Well then, you’re hanging around with the wrong everyone!”
—my mom, to my brother, after he insisted that “everyone” he knows [does something moronic]
“You haven’t seen Washington until you’ve seen it at night!”
—An ad on the back of a city map of DC notes that a study of American politics is incomplete without an examination of its darker, more corrupt moments.
“Hold eye open and rinse gently and slowly.”
—My roommate’s Lysol bottle knows it’s tough trying to see things with new eyes, but if you take it gentle and slow, opening up to broader perspectives doesn’t have to hurt.
