Today happens to be the birthday of Rene Descartes, a scientist, mathematician, and a writer. He was also actively instrumental in developing educational theories and is sometime even referred to as a father of modern philosophy. I spent much time getting to know Descartes in my class that just wrapped up on Monday night. You may know Descartes by his famous prose, “I think, therefore I am.”
To honor my favorite 16th century egg head I found these.
“I think, therefore I am. I think” ~George Carlin
“I think, therefore Descartes exists.”~ Saul Steinberg
“I can therefore I am.”~Simone Weil
“I am because my little dog knows me.”~Gertrude Stein
“I think, therefore I am single.”~Liz Winston
And for some of my own kicks, these.
“I think sometimes I think too much, and I think sometimes I really need to think.”~Me
“I know there’s so much more that I need to know, and I think when I’m ready, the rest to me, will show.”~Me
