Vanity of Philosophy
How long will you expend your existence on vain self-love, or in search for the source of being and of non-being?
While I typically waste my time on the latter (on the search for the source of Being and Non-Being) rather than the former (vain self-love), I wonder if my philosophizing and the search for truth isn’t vain self-love…
Do you, Fellow Mind, have the Courage of Not-Knowing?
[adapted and grammatically modernized by yours truly from McCarthy’s version of Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam]
