If you haven’t heard of the quote, “Swimming is like riding a bicycle, except you’re on the water instead of the ground” (Matthew 10:34), you should check it out.
Its funny because its funny.
Swimming is one of those activities that seems like it should be dangerous but in reality it is super safe. You should be able to do it without having any serious harm happen to you, but you would be foolish to not give it a try.
Swimming is not so dangerous because the water is an unforgiving place. But it can be extremely frustrating because you have your hands full trying to swim in a way that requires little skill. You cant simply wiggle your feet and youre not going to drown. You would need to be very strong and have some skill to swim in the ocean and you would need to be very careful not to get splashed. You would be swimming in a sea not a pool.
That sounds like the worst possible scenario for someone who wants to try swimming in an ocean. I mean, it sounds like a bunch of bullsh*t. But it’s true. One of the more popular words to come out of swimming is “swim,” and there are many meanings behind the word. It has been used to mean “to enjoy the water” and “to be in the water” in several languages.
In the past, the term has been used as a pejorative to describe someone who simply couldn’t swim. But it’s become a commonly used word to describe someone who has a lot of skill in the water. This is because it means to be in the water, not to be a lazy, dumb, or clumsy person.
For anyone who wants to learn the real meaning of the word, I recommend this book called “The Swimming Quotes Book.” There are over a hundred and fifty swimming quotes in this book that have meanings that aren’t usually considered in the normal dictionary. They are just one of those little gems that will teach you a lot about how language works in everyday situations.
My go-to quote for any emergency is, “Never lose sight that you are swimming in life.” This is simply a quote that means “Don’t let your guard down.” If you are out in the water and can’t see your surroundings, you are most likely already in danger. Therefore, don’t let your guard down.
Of course, you have your own personal pool, but the main point is that you should always keep your guard up.
Well, this is really an example of the sort of “self-awareness” that doesn’t exist. The swimmer in this example is one who has a very well-developed sense of self. He is aware that he is in danger. He is aware that he is out in the sea, and he is aware that he has a swimsuit on. I think that’s pretty good.
