Every so often, a great mind appears among us to deliver a small token of wisdom. Often, these clever remarks come from viewing everyday normalities in a different perspective.

Whatever these nuggets of sageness are, they all have one thing in common: They will blow your mind.

But it doesn't matter because these tweets are brilliant.
Each and every tweet in this list will have you saying:You might want to sit down for these. They will make you question everything you ever knew to be true.
