A Humorous Fool or a Serious Jackass?




“And where,” Socrates smiled, “is the universe?”
“The universe is well, there are theories about how it’s shaped…”
“That’s not what I asked. Where is it?”
“I don’t know – how can I answer that?”

“That is the point. You cannot answer it, and you never will. There is no knowing about it. You are ignorant of where the universe is, and thus, where you are. In fact, you have no knowledge of where anything is or of what anything is or how is came to be. Life is a mystery.

“My ignorance is based on this understanding. Your understanding is based on ignorance. This is why I am a humorous fool, and you are a serious jackass.”

― Dan Millman, Way of the Peaceful Warrior

Life is a beautiful journey, not enjoying the ride would be a terrible mistake.

I want to think of myself as a goofball with serious moments, or a serious goofball and I can only hope that other’s look at me the same way.

Life is too short to be serious all the time.

I have been too serious lately, and I feel the need to change that. The laughter I feel inside is bubbling to the surface; there is no holding back.

I admire people like Charly Chaplin who always tried to make us laugh, even in moments when his soul was crying.
