We look but don't always see -- We all search for meaning -- We connect the dots -- We wear rose-colored glasses -- We can walk and chew gum but not much else -- We're in the wrong frame of mind -- We skim -- We like things tidy -- Men shoot first -- We all think we're above average -- We'd rather wing it -- We don't constrain ourselves -- The grass does look greener
