    I'm taking a class on Kant this semester and I stumbled upon teh, best, quote, evar. It sounds misogonystic, but if you know the ins and outs of Descartes meditations, it actually points out how silly men can be:

    "A woman therefor will learn no geometry; of the principle of suficient reason or the monads she will know only so much as is needed to perceive the salt in a satire which the insipid grubs of our sex have censured. The fair sex can leave Descartes his vortices to whirl forever without troubling themselves about it, even though the suave Fontenelle wished to afford them company among the planets" -Kant, The fair sex

    fuckin awesome!

    Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of withering, of tarnishing.
    ~Anais Nin

    Hearts will never be practical until they are made unbreakable.
    ~The Wizard of Oz

    Life is an onion and one peels it crying.
    ~French Proverb

    "I do not know what I may appear to the world; but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me." - Isaac Newton

    very reassuring words for us INT "boys"!

    I found it!

    "The more we analyze, the more we feel we understand. The more we analyze, the more we feel we can control. We forget that megabytes and millimeters and millennia have no intrinsic meaning and are merely human inventions. By trying too hard to understand everything, we may understand nothing. We analyze so much and so well that we may also destroy the vital essence and meaning of things by breaking them into pieces.
    Synthesis is the counter approach. We use it far too little. Synthesis puts the parts back together again and restores the wholeness of things. It permits us to see things in a pure and healthy state, before out analytic minds have broken and destroyed them. If we can achieve synthetic thinking, which is more difficult than analytic thinking, we can perceive things as they really are. Synthesis permits us to see things free of boundaries and barriers, as they exist in the natural world, as a divine creator made them... sometimes we should appreciate the whole rather than the parts."

    overthinking, overanalyzing seperates the body from the mind. Withering my intuition, leaving opportunities behind.
