TODAY THE WORDS ARE FOOLS RUSH IN
TODAY THE WORDS are FOOLS RUSH IN. When I started with this thought, the song Elvis sung “I can’t help falling in love with you” came to mind with the line “Wise men say only fools rush in.” While looking up the information on the song, I came across the Frank Sinatra hit with the actual Title “Fools rush in” written by a writer who I know a descendant, Peggy Mercer, who writes songs too. Love is a wonderful part of life and its appeal sometimes puts our logical side to the side. Take a look at the lyrics and then I will give you my thoughts on this topic.
Songwriters: MERCER, JOHNNY / BLOOM, RUBE
Fools rush in
Where angels fear to tread
And so I come to you my love
My heart above my head
Though I see
The danger there
If there’s a chance for me
Then I don’t care
Fools rush in
Where wise men never go
But wise men never fall in love
So how are they to know
When we met
I felt my life begin
So open up your heart and let
This fool rush in
Why do we seem to rush into relationships, friendships, jobs, homes, and families without thinking about the long term effects? Sometimes, if we didn’t take the risk as the song says, we would miss out on the best things in life. If, however, we don’t stop a minute and give some thought to what can be life changing, we can end up looking “foolish”. On important life events, maybe it not so wise to rush in. It is a choice for us to make and I am not saying to not ever take risks; calculated risks are a better way for us to look wiser. Live life; love life; live life to the fullest by loving with the heart of a wise man by appreciating the significant other.
