hmmm, this has frustrated me for years. Why isnt everyone interested in philosophy? After all, how could you not be interested in life when you're actually in the middle of one?? people don't see the bigger picture, they think the most important thing in life is a job and wife etc, when really everything they ever do is in a bid to be happy; so why not take some time to consider how and why they should be happy?

philosophers are born not made i believe. ive lead many of my friends very far in philosphy, but they just cant (or cant be bothered to) take that last step, what id call a lapse into abstract poetry. ive been questioning everything around me since i was born, thats just the way i am, and i guess everyone here
