The Philosophy of: Philosophy – It’s not about studying it; it’s about living it.

Learning how to live life matters shit if you don’t actually live it. You can read all the books you want, all the great wisdom from all history’s clearest thinkers, but if you don’t actually live life, enjoy your existence (which is a privilege) and do philosophy (as in putting into practice the approach you have to dealing with difficult times, stressful situations, or challenging periods) there’s no point to all the reading.

In every interaction, with every person, in every situation, it’s a chance to do philosophy. Not read it.

And although it helps to show how unimportant many of the things we worry about are, and what we should be grateful for, and helps reveal the true nature and importance of everything, it’s life that gives meaning to the words of philosophy. Not the other way around.
