"Philosophy is born of wonder. So is poetry."
Don't separate joy and knowledge. Our hearts were made deep enough for both.
Gawk at the world as you learn about it.
Laugh while you philosophize.
Love every good thing wildly when good things are hardest to find.
A cynic has a head full of knowledge and an empty heart. A fool has a heart full of joy and an empty head.
Squeeze them both out. Blend them together. A true artist never paints with just one color.
