No matter how loud you shout or how quiet you whisper, there will always be someone to tell you you’re wrong
“Philosophy, like all other studies, aims primarily at knowledge. The knowledge it aims at is the kind of knowledge which gives unity and system to the body of the sciences, and the kind which results from a critical examination of the grounds of our convictions, prejudices, and beliefs. But it cannot be maintained that philosophy has had any very great measure of success in its attempts to provide definite answers to its questions. If you ask a mathematician, a mineralogist, a historian, or any other man of learning, what definite body of truths has been ascertained by his science, his answer will last as long as you are willing to listen. But if you put the same question to a philosopher, he will, if he is candid, have to confess that his study has not achieved positive results such as have been achieved by other sciences. It is true that this is partly accounted for by the fact that, as soon as definite knowledge concerning any subject becomes possible, this subject ceases to be called philosophy, and becomes a separate science.”
-Bertrand Russell, The Problems of Philosophy
Happiness is a funny thing isn’t it. How someone can be so.. Okay with their life no matter what their situation is. Because if you’re happy literally nothing else matters. Whether you’re rich or poor.
There’s this quote from J.S Mills that I love “it is better to be a human being dissatisfied than a pig satisfied; better to be Socrates dissatisfied than a fool satisfied”.
If you’re happy then what does it matter, in all honesty?
I guess ignorance really is bliss. But why be ignorant when you can just accept things are the way they are and move on.
I get pulled up on a lot about how I listen to my ipod too much, or how I’m on my phone too much. I don’t know why, but too much human interaction puts me on edge, I don’t like the idea of fighting to have your voice heard, I’d much rather listen
