The unexamined life

December 27, 2013


“The unexamined life is not worth living.” So said Socrates, via Plato. And oh, there is much todo over the meaning of this philosophical nugget, even now, so many centuries after it was first uttered. (Disclaimer: I have not yet read Plato’s Apology in full.) They all interest, but don’t unduly concern, me. For me, it […]

I don’t know

December 21, 2013


“We are well advised to keep on nodding terms with the people we used to be, whether we find them attractive company or not. Otherwise they turn up unannounced and surprise us, come hammering on the mind’s door at 4am of a bad night and demand to know who deserted them, who betrayed them, who […]

How sad is that? Pretty sad. But it’s better than having unfulfilled desire rat-trapping my brain and […]

November 6, 2013


“If I could only give three words of advice, they would be, “tell the truth.” If I got three more words, I’d add: “All the time.” ” A good apology has three parts: I’m sorry; it was my fault; how do I make it right? Most people skip that third part. That’s how you can tell sincerity.” – […]
