A persistent demand to be met is bound

In Level 7 by Mordecai Roshwald, a fiction book with a political point that I do not necessarily recommend, there is a quote in appendix B that I found interesting.  Appendix B is two chapters from a novel the author wrote that was never published.  In this section there is said to be a proverb.  The proverb is, “A persistent demand to be met is bound,”.  I found this interesting because that is all there is to the quote.  My mind completed the thought and added …to be met, but then the quote is saying that I would do so.  But, then the quote would not have made sense if I had not completed the thought, but then it wouldn’t have said I would have if I hadn’t…

    Okay, you’re a million times smarter than me because I have no clue what that quote meant or what your thoughts on the quote meant either. Here I am struggling with my French homework but now I’m feeling that French might not be so hard after all. 🙂

    I am so excited to find your blog! I just now saw your comment on my blog. I’m not sure how long it’s been there — I haven’t been in the blogosphere much in the last couple of weeks. I don’t have time today to read down through your past posts, but I added this to Google Reader and as I have time I’m going to read your past posts. How fun for me! I haven’t made time yet for Facebook so I’m out of the loop that way. Anyway, gotta get back to homework!

    Hey Leigh, Karis gave me you blog address, so I just stopped by really quickly. Hope your family is doing well. Tell them I said hey!

    Karis, Angela got it, but then she said not to worry about not getting it because it’s just a weird Leigh thing. Your comments made me laugh. I hope my other posts make some more sense than this one. I’m not usually that obscure… at least I don’t think I am. Hmm….

    Kristen, Yes, we’re doing fine. I told Angela you said hey.
