Not design related and very random but not sure where else to ask this right now.
Does this like make sense, meaning does it seem like proper English?
"Where would I be without wounds?"
If I do a yahoo/google search with the quotes, I dont get any matches, which makes me think noones every used it on the internet, which makes me think it may not be proper english.
Does this LINE make sense I meant to say, not LIKE.
Shit, the line is "Who would I be without wounds"
what. the. fuck?
1. An injury, especially one in which the skin or another external surface is torn, pierced, cut, or otherwise broken.
2. An injury to the feelings.
are you sure you mean wounds?
What would I be without wounds?
Yes, loosely meaning when someone tries to knock you down, that makes you a better/wiser person. That sort of thing. So the wounds make you who you are.
right. yeah, i see what you mean but that phrase is completely wrong in conveying the message.
Maybe I just need to adjust the words a little to make sense, I figured its not proper english because you cant find it on yahoo or google using quotes which is not a good sign.
That a little too direct, I need something as abstract as possible.
technically it makes sense....
but it's not an expression....no one says that
that is to say.....you are the first person I have ever heard use that combination of words.....but I understand what you are saying.
it's like when Kirk said "I NEED my pain"
same type of thing I would think
Isn't the meaning more 'where would I be without having been wounded'? Wounds are of the moment, and they heal. Seems to me you're alluding to strength gained from being wounded and then healing, many times over.
Or I could be talking bollocks.
"what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger"
You would be a man.
Yes, it's proper English
Seems fine to me.
