yes, but

Aside from ....

Except for ....

Does anyone else marvel at the human capacity for yes-but-ing life?

It sounds so sensible. It is often based in hard-won experience. Languidly lounging in the greys between black and white....

YES, BUT ...

It doesn't seem to be genetic and it hardly deserves to be burdened with "good" or "bad." It's just one of those facts of life, I guess.

How does anyone get over the yes-but's attending on one situation or another?

What is the penalty for maintaining a yes-but fortress ... perhaps for an entire lifetime?

Life says "yes."

I say, "yes-but."

How does this compute?

  2. Yes, but. I think it's very common.
