You may think that borrowing things saves money. Wrong. You can go for years botting on your friends and using up their goods…telling yourself that you’ve saved all that cash…but eventually you’ll lose or break something expensive and have to buy the lender a new item. All your cheap skating will have been for nothing.
The same thing applies to mental processes. If you read an argument or opinion and decide to borrow it for yourself – to substitute for actually thinking – you’ll eventually end up paying big-time. Because the opinion that you borrow may become soiled through other’s use and broken down by better thoughts. Then you have to pay for having used it. And you won’t even have it to use anymore.
Do your own thinking. It’s cheaper in the end.
