I do love a bit of word play. And where better to play with words than with a well-known philosophical quote. Sometimes I have days where I feel fruity, almost, and I must stress, almost, yam like. And days when I feel like a vegetable and just want to lay like an airbed and Lilo i.e. Lie low.
I realize that I may be going overboard with the similes today but I have decided to call today ‘National Simile Day’, for me anyway.
Descartes, ‘I think therefore I am’ is one of my favorite philosophical quotes. Although recently I heard the phrase ‘I am not what I think I am, I am not what you think I am, I am what I think you think I am’ by Charles Horton Cooley.
Jay Shetty describes it beautifully here. And I love his phrase ‘we live in echo chambers’.
I have been on a bit of a Monty Python ‘Holy Grail’ roll over the last few days. And I will finish with this clip. It did make me giggle. Particularly Karl Marx doing his warm up exercises fervently. ‘Monty Python Philosophy Football’.
That’s all for now
