Thus Spoke the Danish Sage (Part II)

27 03 2008

Anyone who is familiar with Iqbal’s work will agree with me that if one did not know that these words were written by Kierkegaard then they would certainly say that these words were uttered by Iqbal. One again, I am impressed by the genius of the Danish Sage.



Book Meme

15 03 2008

Better late than never, that’s what I say. There are some posts in my drafts section which are almost a year old. iA I will get a chance to cover all these. I was tagged by IslamAtHeart for a book meme. Here are the rules of the book meme.

  1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
  2. Open the book to page 123
  3. Find the 5th Sentence.
  4. Post the next 3 sentences.
  5. Tag 5 people

The book closest to me is “The Cambridge Companion to Merleau-Ponty.” Here are the three sentences.

In the empiricist tradition, thoughts are grounded by discovering their causal connection to the world. In other words, the content of our thoughts is more or less “keyed” as Quine says, to causal stimulations of our sensory surfaces. “Two cardinal tenets of empiricism remain,” according to Quine “unassailable.”

As for tagging five people, all of my blogging friends have been tagged so there is no one left. :0

Friends and Family by Trik Turner

This song is somewhat stuck in my head right now so I thought I should share the lyrics with everyone.

Friends And Family Lyrics
Trik Turner

Some call me a loser
Some call me a cheater
Some say I’m a selfish untalented dreamer
Cause all’s I try to do is keep my dream alive
But it’s so hard to do when your working 9 to 5
I’ve never been one afraid to die
But I’m afraid to leave behind
The precious life that grows through the sands of time
Cause now I’ve got two daughters
And I know they need their father
To help them make it through all of the devious things that people do
Cause every moment counts from the good times to the bad
I don’t have time to envy those that got things I’ve never had
Cause the one thing most important is the one we take for granted
And until your life is on that line I think it’s the way god had planned it
To open up your eyes and make you realize
That to some life is money
But what’s money without life
Cause all’s I need is the air that I breathe
And my friends and family to believe in me
