  • I think what he is saying is that if you have no guiding principles for your life then you are subject to the latest trends and whims of popular opinion.  And I agree.

  • That maybe true.

  • I think it's an oxymoron.

    What you consider "falling for" may be someone else's "stand for".

  • I tend to agree with this, although I never think about using the saying. I think people are afraid to take a firm stand on things and then they do become followers to alot of things.

  • I'm thinking true.

    If you stand for nothing, then you accept whatever is popular at the moment.
