    work along logical lines

    Now, I know there is no logic in this but then my mind does not work along logical lines.

    Hii there,
    Can I replace the underlined expression by "follow"?
    Is "follow a logical line" good and common English, please?
    How would a native say it?
    Thanks.

    jctgf, you are correct! "My mind does not follow logical lines." "My mind is not always logical!" Both are common usage in North America.

    Cheers,
    Amigo

    Re: work along logical lines

    "...my mind does not work along logical lines."
    "follow a logical line"

    However, they mean two different things.
    Can you use your logic to work out what they are?
