To Be A Philosopher Is Not Merely To Have Subtle Though

HomeFortune CookiesMiscellaneous Collections

To be a philosopher is not merely to have subtle thoughts, nor even to
found a school, but so to love wisdom as to live according to its dictates,
a life of simplicity, independence, magnanimity, and trust. It is to solve
the problems of life not only theoretically, but practically.
-- Henry David Thoreau
