With philosophy in both hands
If you didn’t believe me when I said I’d sold my soul and now I’m a philosopher, consider: I’ve just spent the night (midnight – 7 a.m., with breaks) reading 15 pages of philosophy, writing 160 words of notes on those 15 pages, and then writing over 560 words about that philosophy here.
I was seized, riveted through the entire process. This is not something I need to read for class and will appear on no text I am taking.
I'm not joking when I say philosophy is all I have.
