Scarcity in economy is an important quality in Chinese brush painting. With the minimum of strokes you must be able to achieve the essence of the subject. Have I achieved the above in one minute attempt?
In my mind which I carry everywhere I go especially the software called knowledge. As one quote which automatically comes to mind defines :-
"Knowledge is of two kinds; you know the subject yourself or you know where to get information upon it".
Meaning in the first instance you are an 'expert' and in the second instance you are a 'life-long learner'. The new blog entitled " Philosophy - a Sarawak Edition" will be written from a life-long learning perspective. Thus anybody at any age anywhere can join in the fun. Comments are welcome.
Now having drawn the glass on the table what do you see? I gathered this quotation ages ago and somewhere pops out of my brain cells just now:~
A philosopher is a person who looks at an empty glass with a smile.
...oops like a Taoist would say, when you look at an empty vessel what is useful is the void from which water pours to satisfy your thirst. Knowledge will be nothing if it is not useful.
So now carry on smiling. Hopefully you can find some enjoyment as I do in yearning to learn about philosophy.
