On Thinking

charles french words reading and writing

“The examined life is not worth living.” Socrates

“Imagination is more important than knowledge.” Albert Einstein

“Thought is subversive and revolutionary, destructive and terrible; thought is merciless to privilege; thought is anarchic and lawless, indifferent to authority, careless of well-tried wisdom of the ages. Thought looks into the pit of hell and is not afraid. It sees man, a feeble speck, surrounded by unfathomable depths of silence; yet it bears itself proudly, as unmoved as if it were lord of the universe. Thought is great and swift and free, the light of the world, and the chief glory of man” (Russell, Bertrand. Why Men Fight 178-9).

“All good writing is inherently subversive.” Charles French

  1. oh what are you talking about? “The examined life is not worth living.” Nope, the unexamined life.. 🙂
    Spell checker I guess, which is mostly stupid 🙂 Unexamined is what Socrates meant. 🙂
