Splash du Jour: Friday

Learn [philosophy] as the philosophers learned it – by inward quest. Avoid philosophic systems. Idiots love them because they can all band together and piss in a quill and look down on the unenlightened majority. But nobody can teach you more than somebody else’s philosophy. You have to make it your own before it’s any good.
-- Hugh McWearie, in the Robertson Davies novel, The Cunning Man

Have a great Friday!
