No Strings Attached...
As found on Wikipedia - According to one source, the origin of this phrase is from the cloth industry, where a small flaw in a fabric would be marked by a string, so it could easily be spotted. This suggests a meaning of "without flaws".
These days it’s used as unconditional, For a friend, I'll help out for free, no strings attached.
I propose there are always strings attached and I would venture to go even further with it than just personal interactions.
We are all attached by strings.
- We do something nice – with no strings attached but we are getting something out of it. We feel good about being kind, we secretly are keeping score and will request something in return down the road, we are trying to build good karma
- The people we talk to, the beliefs we have are all attached to something
It’s like the butterfly effect… a butterfly flaps its wings in Tokyo and a tornado occurs in Tennessee.
We have IMPACT. We do not live in a plastic bubble... what we do matters, it has an impact and we are attached.
