“Doubt is thought’s despair.  Despair is personality’s doubt.  Doubt and despair belong to completely different spheres.  Different sides of the soul are set in motion.  Despair is an expression of the total personality, doubt only of thought.”

Kierkegaard

If you don't at least occasionally contradict yourself, your position isn't nearly complex enough.

All know the way; few actually walk it.
Not engaging in ignorance is wisdom.
Freeing oneself from words is liberation.
Many roads lead to the path, but basically there are only two: reason and practice.
As long as you're enthralled by a lifeless form, you're not free.
To find a Buddha all you have to do is see your nature.
According to the Sutras, evil deeds result in hardships and good deeds result in blessings.
Buddhas move freely through birth and death, appearing and disappearing at will.
But while success and failure depend on conditions, the mind neither waxes nor wanes.
Your nature is the Buddha.

- Bodhidharma

The facts themselves are not the ones that affect the people's imagination, but rather the way they are presented. Knowing the art of influencing the imagination of the masses means knowing the art of its rule.

All truth passes through three stages:
First, it is ridiculed;
Second, it is violent opposed;
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

"The European, or rather the white man in general, is scarcely in a position to judge of his own state of mind. He is too deeply involved. I had always wanted to see Europeans through other eyes, and eventually I was able, on my many journeys, to establish sufficiently close relationships with non-Europeans to see the European through their eyes. The white man is nervous, restless, hurried, unstable, and (in the eyes of non-Europeans) possessed by the craziest ideas, in spite of his energy and gifts which give him the feeling of being infinitely superior. The crimes he has committed against the coloured races are legion, though obviously this is no justification for any fresh crime, just as the individual is no better for being in a vast company of bad people. Primitives dread the sharply focussed stare in the eye of the European, which seems to them like the evil eye. A Pueblo chieftain once confided to me that he thought all Americans (the only white men he knew) were crazy, and the reasons he gave for this view sounded exactly like a description of people who were possessed."

~Carl Jung, CW 10, pars. 431-433, from Jung's 1945 essay "After the Catastrophe"

“The old man went on to say that the hunter was a different thing than men supposed. He said that men believe the blood of the slain to be of no consequence but that the wolf knows better. He said that the wolf is a being of great order and that it knows what men do not: that there is no order in the world save that which death has put there. Finally he said that if men drink the blood of God yet they do not understand the seriousness of what they do. He said that men wish to be serious but they do not understand how to be so. Between their acts and their ceremonies lies the world and in this world the storms blow and the trees twist in the wind and all the animals that God has made go to and fro yet this world men do not see. They see the acts of their own hands or they see that which they name and call out to one another but the world between is invisible to them.”  --Cormac McCarthy, from The Crossing

seriously though, i often say that everybody is a philosopher. people can honestly come up with all this shit themselves. why does it matter so much when a particular name says it?
when some homeless, addict says something profound nobody seems to want to know :/

“[Comedies], in the ancient world, were regarded as of a higher rank than tragedy, of a deeper truth, of a more difficult realization, of a sounder structure, and of a revelation more complete. The happy ending of the fairy tale, the myth, and the divine comedy of the soul, is to be read, not as a contradiction, but as a transcendence of the universal tragedy of man.... Tragedy is the shattering of the forms and of our attachments to the forms; comedy, the wild and careless, inexhaustible joy of life invincible.”
Joseph Campbell

The motive behind criticism often determines its validity. Those who care criticize where necessary. Those who envy criticize the moment they think that they have found a weak spot.
