Quote for the Week

I’m still working on the next installment on “Work and Philosophy.”  In the meantime, here’s a thought I ran across:

 

“There are nowadays professors of philosophy, but not philosophers.  Yet it is admirable to profess because it was once admirable to live.  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 some of the problems of life, not only theoretically, but practically.”

—-Henry David Thoreau
