Why put faith into words that obviously had no weight to the guy who "coined" the phrase?

No one knows the worth of innocence till he knows it is gone forever, and that money can't buy it back. Not the saint, but the sinner that repenteth, is he to whom the full length and breadth, and height and depth, of life's meaning is revealed. Good and evil loose all objective meaning and are seen as equally necessary and contrasting elements in the masterpiece that is the universe.

I don't know anything about the guy who coined that phrase. I just think they are good words. It's kind of my philosophy of life, in a way.

Namaste.

The guy who wrote the song "Don't worry, be Happy" commited suicide by jumping out of a window. Either he was REALLY happy and thought he could fly, or he just didn't value his own advice. I'm reminded of the post where peeps are talking about Watts, and how even though he had a strong intellect and quite good ideas, they aren't valid as he was an alchoholic. So does this mean that the phrase "Dont worry, be happy" is bullshit?

That is not true. The first false rumours that he is dead seemed to start appearing in 1997, but Bobby McFerrin is still alive and well. He released an album last year and is touring this summer. You can check out Bobby's schedule on his own website:

Oh!  Well I stand corrected! :smile:  That's quite refreshing!
