Personally written wisdom sayings

Chat about anything your heart desires here, just be civil. Factual or scientific questions about philosophy go here (e.g. "When was Socrates born?"), and so most homework help questions belong here. Note, posts in the off-topic section will not increase new members post counts. This includes the introductions and feedback sections.

I did not write this, but it is a favorite:

A man is not what he thinks he is – but what he thinks – he is - !!!

Any philosophy that is not personalized is not existentialism. Those who merely regurgitate someone else's philosophy is not an existentialist

Here are two of mine. Not orginal ideas, I suppose, but mine nonetheless.
"Every hurt is a lesson, every scar a reminder of where we have been. If you can't accept this, then the next time that you fall, stay down. Otherwise, look to the skies, and rise again, harder, stronger, and wiser for it. Practice forgiveness, but NEVER forget."

"While upon the path, one will eventually come to the step where the feeble bonds of language must be left behind in order to find yourself lost in something unspeakable."

War is a hogtie event and the primary binding factors are: simple mindedness, hubris, and fear.
