The person that suggested this topic was Sarah Davis. Go check out her blog at http://blog.elanco.org/davis934 . Leave a comment down below to be featured it the next smarter every week.

What is a paradox? According to dictionary.com , a paradox a statement or proposition that seems self-contradictory or absurd but in reality expresses a possible truth.

What are some examples of a paradox? Some examples of paradoxes are:

  • Here are the rules: Ignore all rules.
  • The second sentence is false. The first sentence is true.
  • I only message those who do not message.
  • You can save money by spending it.
  • I know one thing; that I know nothing.
  • This is the beginning of the end.
  • Deep down, you’re really shallow.
  • I’m a compulsive liar.
  • “Men work together whether they work together or apart.” – Robert Frost
  •  “What a pity that youth must be wasted on the young.” – George Bernard Shaw
  • “I can resist anything but temptation.” – Oscar Wilde
