Friday Funnies: the tradition continues

It’s been a week or two since I last posted Friday Funnies, but Do Not Panic!  Dreadful though they may be, they return with vengeance today.

First, a little light philosophy – Aphorisms of the Philosophers (courtesy of Glyn Hughes Squashed Philosophers: Go there, you’ll love it)


One who knows and knows he knows is a wise man, Follow Him
One who knows and knows not he knows is asleep, Awaken him
One who knows not and knows he knows not is a child, Teach him
One who knows not and knows not he knows not is a Fool, Avoid him

Schopenhauer – Would you believe, German pessimist academic philosopher (no kidding!)

Der Reichtum gleicht dem Seewasser: je mehr man davon trinkt, desto durstiger wird man. (Wealth is like sea-water; the more we drink, the thirstier we become; and the same is true of fame.)

Intellect is invisible to the man who has none. Aphorismen for Wisdom

Nietzsche Fiercely anti-religious German academic philosopher

Is not life a hundred times too short for us to bore ourselves? Beyond Good and Evil

Oldie but goodie

… and last but not least: cute animal pix with captions

  1. I’m in need of some humour today, so this fits the bill. Thanks!

    Rather than “Beam me up, Scotty!”, I’m reminded more of “May the force be with you!” in that first picture.
