The philosophy I am interested in is a very practical matter. The original meaning of the word was “the love of wisdom” and in this sense, everyone should be a philosopher. Loving wisdom is part of being a lover. And being a lover is part of being truly human.

We should love as we breathe: constantly, effortlessly, without intention or the desire to accomplish anything beyond the next breath, the next moment of a loving life. And if anything in life is worthy of love, it is wisdom.

Love and wisdom go together like toast and butter or bacon and eggs. And they are just as commonplace, and just as special.
