Science is the great antidote to the poison of enthusiasm and superstition.

Before science was established as a proper method to use when approaching life’s mysteries, enthusiasm and superstition (as well as emotional excess) often ruled the day. This lead to such human tragedies as witch hunts and worse. Humans have always been enthusiastic and emotional creatures, and superstitions flow naturally when emotion meets unfettered intelligence. Science, and the principles thereof, help reduce the enthusiasm, help hold the emotions at bay, and help banish superstitions with logic.

The real tragedy of the poor is the poverty of their aspirations.

We have too many high-sounding words, and too few actions that correspond with them.

We have many people who promise to do good things for us, but only a few people who will really do the things, others are fake.

It is not the oath that makes us believe the man, but the man the oath.
- Aeschylus -

When a man makes a promise, the promise doesn't make us believe that what the man says is true. But when someone is a good man, then we believe the promise.

A friend is one who has the same enemies as you have.

When one door closes another opens, but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.

Wisdom comes alone through suffering.
- Aeschylus -

He who learns must suffer. Learning causes knowledge in the same way that suffering causes wisdom. Knowledge is understanding reality quantitatively and wisdom is understanding it qualitatively.

I don't think necessity is the mother of invention -- invention, in my opinion, arises directly from idleness, possibly also from laziness. To save oneself trouble.

I don't think it's need that makes people think of new things. I think people think of new ways of doing things only because they are lazy and don't want to work hard. To save themselves from having to do work. New ideas come from being lazy when it comes to doing something and wanting to do it in an easier way because of it.

Call no man happy till he is dead.
- Aeschylus -

Do not say a person is happy until he is dead. You cannot tell if a person's life has been happy on the whole until that person's life is over; no matter how happy someone is now, something bad may happen to destroy his or her happiness.

It is an easy thing for one whose foot is on the outside of calamity to give advice and to rebuke the sufferer.
- Aeschylus -

It is easy for someone who is standing outside of (not suffering from) disaster to be a critic of someone who is suffering from disaster. We all can criticize other but how many of us put ourselves in the position of the sufferer?

You Don’t Have to Know Everything. You Just Have to Know Where to Find It

In 1921, Einstein was asked about the speed of sound and replied that he didn’t know because he didn’t carry such information in his mind if it was readily available in textbooks. Today, we have access to more information than ever before. We can find answers to most questions through our smartphones within just a few minutes, if not seconds. Yet, the education system is still forcing students to memorize information for tests. That’s not only ineffective but also worthless as information itself isn’t of value anymore. What matters is how you use that information and whether you can recall it when needed.

Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.

Too often, we try to be logical and live our lives based on what should be done instead of listening to our inner voice. Yet the truth is that your intuition and imagination can take you to places your logic could never dare to enter.

A clever person solves a problem. A wise person avoids it.

Most people feel overwhelmed once they face challenges. As soon as they find a mistake, they start to look for a solution. Yet what we should do instead is looking for the root, the cause of the problem, and avoiding it altogether instead of just solving it. If you’re open to change, you’ll be able to eliminate so many of your daily struggles just by changing the way you think and live. Every time you feel stuck in life and don’t know how to keep going, look for the little insecurities and problems you face and figure out how to avoid those.

For fools rush in where angels fear to tread.

Fools do things which the intelligent are afraid to do.The inexperienced people do what the intelligent are afraid to do.

We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.
- Aesop -

We kill the people who steal small things. The ones who steal big things we elect to be our leaders. It is the scenario of our world.

I have realized that the past and future are real illusions, that they exist in the present, which is what there is and all there is.

The past and the future only really exist, in thought, and, at the present moment. So that makes them an illusion. They are concepts that you give your attention to, and thus remove your attention from the present moment. When you think of the future, you are not thinking of the actual future but a scenario in your head that you think will (or will not) happen. When you think of the past, you re-create a memory in your mind in something that happened in the past. Now, where are you thinking about future and the past? In the present. In both instances, you are not living in the future or the past. In fact your imagination of future and past are created in that moment. Even memories are not 100% correct re-creations of what happened in the past and imaginations about future are most certainly not (since nobody has a looking glass). These things don't exist as such as they are mental abstractions. So only moment that there ever is, is the present. In other words, the past and the future are ‘in your head’ and not actually ‘real’.

Reality is only a Rorschach ink-blot, you know.
Topic : Philosophy , Thoughts

Paint blot art works (just like inkblots from the Rorschach test) are great as they do not require any artistic skill to create. Blot pictures can help you to tap into how you are feeling and help you to make meaning as you talk about what you see in your blots. The blots are just blobs and splats on paper however the human mind loves to make meaning. We constantly make meaning of things all day long, our mind fills in the gaps that are missing pieces and invents new meaning out of what it can see or know. Paint blotting can help you to work around your logical brain to access your more creative right side brain. What you can see in a paint blot can be the starting point for a short story or even the beginnings of a more developed painting yet to be created. Once you have created your ink blot picture you will almost immediately start to see images within it such as monsters, butterflies, people dancing, flowers, animals, landscapes. You may quite possibly see how embellishing your picture could bring out an image even further. Once you have made your blot piece stand back and take a look, turn it upside down. This exercise is almost like looking for shapes in clouds. You might even see a couple of different things within your painting, it may depend on what way your artwork is turned as to what you can see. How does the image you created represent something that you have been feeling, experienced, or need to know? We are all storytellers and meaning makers, there will always be something to discover. Grab yourself a pad and pen to record your observations and start to journal about your discoveries. Make a list of things you see in this paint blot. Speak from the drawing as if your blot picture held a message for you. Don’t think too much about it just feel into your work and listen to what it is telling you. Write the story from the images you can see. There is no right or wrong, this is simply up to you to invent and to use your imagination!

Nothing can harm you as much as your own thoughts unguarded.
- Buddha -

The human mind is like a steering wheel of a car. With no one to hold it and direct it, the car is going to crash. The thoughts that occur to us are not our own. They ‘arrive.’ Now it depends on us to engage with them. We have an option to engage and get involved or turn them away at the door. We must always be aware of what thoughts we get.

Your thoughts are the architects of your destiny.

An architect doesn't design a house without paying attention to details. When he's building a house, he knows every detail. The details are the foundation on which everything is built. The little things you do, the details of your life, are what allow you to become the architect of your destiny. Everything happens for a reason, yes, but it happens regardless.

There are as many opinions as there are experts.

Opinions are the reflection of the person, their thoughts, and perceptions of life, just as you have made now. There are as many opinions as there are people: each has his own correct way. All a person has in life is an opinion, this is from thought, and we are thought and nothing else.

A minute of thought is greater than an hour of talk.

Talking on topic for hours and not coming to a solution is absolutely waste of time. Instead with silent and calm mind if a think on and for something one can surely come out with solution. This will increase our knowledge and we can come out with new ideas.
