Words from the Druid Taliesin:

"Whence I came, I know. Whither I go, I know not. I came forth from the womb of Experience.
What I know, that I am. What I know not, is the limitless measure of what I may become.
Life grows, and I see it. And so I grow, because I know it.
I will strike such a blow on the anvil of life as shall use to the utmost all I am.
Thus, though I know not whither I go nor what I shall be, I shall go to no home of idleness.
I shall be no grey ghost lamenting what I might have done, but did not"

—from The Log of Tros of Samothrace

I was lucky enough to have read this at 10 tears old and have since tried to live my life by these 'Y's words.
I often repeat it to myself..... 8)

“It takes a special energy, over and above one's creative potential,
a special audacity or subversiveness, to strike out in a new direction once one is settled.
It is a gamble as all creative projects must be, for the new direction may not turn out to be productive at all.”
Oliver Sacks, The River of Consciousness.

Of course, Philosophy is for lazy buggers who don't want to work for a living and escape the real life.
You can with Philosophy justify anything, which is worrying.
Sure it look inspirational, but what did any philosopher actually achieve if that's all they ever did ?

Mainstream religion belongs in the philosophy section of the library.

Philosophy was invented by the Greeks, these were "men" that ******* each other to show their love and it was believed made them better fighters.

They say the Greeks invented sex. It was the Italians who introduced wimmin into that invention though. :rs

Greeks take credit for everything but dont like to mention their pre history days they wrote about for some reason...
