Place here any crazy and imaginative philosophy you may have upon life, try to make them short so the reading of them can be the same.

Philosophy :

Imagine if there was something that has existed with us upon this planet since the very beginning and yet was outside the grasp of our senses, in that it is with us now and everywhere too but nevertheless not perceivable by ourselves.

Also I happened to hear an interesting one concerning "The Matrix", it is as follows:

If it is possible that we as humans could frame something as the matrix then it is also possible that we have already done so, and that the machines who consequently would usurp the control from their creators are taunting us by showing the films that became reality already in the past.

The thought of that hadn't come to me when I watched that film.

The most tolerable approach to adopt towards depressive fits is to start mocking at yourself.../but this is designed mainly for presonal consummation/

....."I am my life"...is perhaps the most serious thought I have had in my life -so I have honored it with the designation for purely sentimental reasons...

My personal philosophy:

We're born, stuff happens (exactly what stuff depends on where you live and how hard you are willing to work), we die, people cry (depending on what stuff happened), we decompose, we are forgotten.

My personal philosophy is:

Question everything, Explore everything, Try everything, and live a life worth living.

My math teacher tells us hers everyday of class:
Do it.
Do it right.
Do it right now.
*sigh* I like mine better :D

My personal philosophy is; You worry you die, you don't worry you die, why worry? Basically, in the end we all die so make what happens beforehand count. Why waste time worrying when you could be doing something better.

life?
Is the interval of time from birth to death, when actions happen only between those two intervals. Else, you don`t exist, and there`s no life. Anything happens while this interval of time is ignited, you`ll have to bear and tolerate or try to change so that you live a better life. You have got a mind, use it - but make sure you can`t change life.
The interval seems to be like this [ time ], you don`t exist before [ nor after ].
Seize it.

My Syllogistic Philosophy of Everything.

Major Premise: If it (anything) is actually going to happen sometime in the future, then there is no point in being anxious now.
Minor Premise: If it (anything) is not actually going to happen sometime in the future, then there is no point in being anxious now.
Conclusion: Either way, there is no point in being anxious now.

Of course, it is incomplete, neglecting any mention of personal Will--that's to be assumed.

My philosophy is that you treat all living things(men/women/children/plants/animals) with equal respect, kindness and peace. You will notice this respect returned to you, if you pay attention.

My philosophy is live by what you say. If you wish others to swallow bitter medicine and won't drink it yourself, they will doubt it has any healing qualities. Living a sermon will do more than preaching one. :)

Another one of many of my philosophies:

Don't hate or discriminate, just appreciate.

At the end of your life, you will not be remebered by what you own, what you have acheived or the positions you hold. On the day of your funeral, they will remember how good a friend you were, how honestly you have lived your life and how principled your choices were.

To thine own self be true.


"To thine own self be true." Voltaire or Shakespeare or both? the quote is so true, and yet it's the most difficult thing in the world for people. but ahhh! for those that do...

:) Ahh yes,most assume it to be a declaration of priority of self or self-indulgence, but i find quite the opposite:D

Well, interpreting the quote with a concentration on the mention of truth, not self. As in being true to moral conscience. Self, not as individual self, but self as a human being in general. To be true to and use one's rationality and sense of moral justice instead of conforming to peer or societal pressure. Once again, we can relate it to stripping one's self of inculturalization ;) :p

Ahh... individuality vs. conformity also has an Emersonian taste- if you're interested, check out his essay, "Self-Reliance." It's a bit verbose in places, but simply brilliant.

Here's mine:

Love passionately and deeply, no matter what or whom. It is the cure for all evils that will never run dry.

On the day of your funeral, they will remember how good a friend you were, how honestly you have lived your life and how principled your choices were. - I totally agree with that one.

My philosophy would be my first signature, and - Seize the day!
