I want therefore I am

I probably have said this before, but who knows....?

It is not so much  René Descartes' "I think therefore I am" that is true, but rather, unless I'm off by lot, "I want, therefore I am."

There is nothing wrong with thinking, which is a perfectly good human function. But as the T-shirt aptly observes, "Don't believe everything you think." It is the wanting that muddies the waters, I suspect.

Or maybe I am just swimming in quicksand yet again.

  1. I scream.
    You scream.
    We all scream for Ice Cream.

    Who knew that was philosophy and psychology?
